Mercer Area School District School Board
Next Board Meeting: Monday, December 7, 2020 School Board Reorganization Meeting at 8:00 p.m.
The Mercer Board of Directors meets in the middle-high school library, however during COVID social distancing, they meet in the auditorium at 8:00 p.m., on the third Monday of each month, except December (the first Monday) and January, February, and April (the fourth Monday), as noted on the calendar. All meetings are public, and visitors are welcome to attend.
The Board of Education consists of nine elected members serving terms of four years; terms of office are staggered so that there is a constant balance between experienced and new members sitting in session during the operation of the schools. The directors are responsible for the total operation of the public schools and are empowered to construct buildings as needed, raise monies for operating expenses, and formulate policies for personnel who are employed by the district. The directors also have a representative (Mr. Lengel) on the board of the Mercer County Career Center, located at 776 Greenville Road, Mercer, PA 16137. Phone: 724-662-3000.
