However, according to the New Jersey School Boards Association, the role of the Board of Education is to represent the concerns of the citizens, taxpayers and parents... that seems to be a much broader group than the current Board majority claims they represent when they say they are elected to serve the children of the Hoboken Public Schools.
What is the role of the school board...?
Answer: The school board has a dual role: To represent the concerns of the citizens, taxpayers and parents to the school administrators, and to represent the needs of the students and school district to the citizens, taxpayers and parents of the community... -NJSBA
One need only look at the actual Hoboken Board of Education Organizational Chart printed in "The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2015" published on December 8, 2015 on p. vii for how this is codified officially in the district. While some Board members seem to have a rather myopic interpretation of their roles, other Board members have a more expansive and inclusive sense of the role of Board membership...and one seemingly more in synch with the New Jersey School Boards Association.
