The Board of Education is a corporate body. Any liability it incurs is a liability of the corporation and not that of the members of the Board as individuals. As a continuing corporate entity, the legality of its contracts is not based on the official life of its members.
The Niskayuna Board of Education has seven members who are elected at large to serve for three-year terms. The terms are staggered so that at least two members are elected each year.
