Roles and Responsibilities

The Board of Education is an organization of elected citizens and residents living in the district for a minimum of one year. Once a member has been elected to the Board, they gain the right to vote on proceedings concerning the school district. The Board of Education is responsible for a wide variety of transactions and decisions that are made in the district. Some of their responsibilities include:

  • Regulating student activities, rules and regulations, and appeals
  • Decisions associated with dress code regulations
  • Training new board members
  • Developing and maintaining policies
  • Providing an annual district budget

The Board of Education meets annually for the first time as an organization to appoint their members to their place in office. Board meetings occurring during the school year never start later than eight p.m. and are announced in the Trenton Times. The Robbinsville Board of Education meets in the Student Activities Center in Robbinsville High School on the last Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

The Robbinsville Board of Education is made up of nine members. Three Board seats are filled through a community election each year for a term of three years. 


  1. Foster a strong academic culture in Robbinsville where clearly articulated curriculum, expectations, and attitudes motivate students to high levels of academic success.
  2. Create conditions where good citizenship and strength of character are an integral part of the school community's culture.
  3. Ensure that district facilities are well managed, secure, and maintained so that the learning environment for every student is optimal.
  4. Promote community collaboration and information sharing so that all members of the Robbinsville community are valued as important contributors to the health of the school district.
  5. Create an annual financial plan that advances important district goals yet continues to stabilize the community tax rate.
