By Tim Reidy, Chair, Committee for the Non-Partisan Nomination and Election of School Trustees


Feb. 22, 2017:  The deadline to apply to be a candidate in this year's Bronxville school board trustee search is quickly approaching.

Bronxville's Committee for Non-Partisan Nomination and Election of School Trustees (NPC) will accept applications through Saturday, March 4, which is less than two weeks away.

Ideal candidates should have the capacity and desire to make a valuable, lasting contribution to the school.

Any resident who is interested in running for school trustee, or who would like to suggest candidates, should contact the NPC as soon as possible. The application form can be found on the NPC website, www.bronxvillenpc.com.

To propose candidates, to nominate yourself, or for more information about becoming a part of the NPC, please contact the NPC chair, Tim Reidy, at 860-518-1010 or vice chairs Cathy Flanagan at 914-262-5621 or Jim King at 914-216-5332, or you may email the NPC at CLOAKING .

The school trustees set the broad policy for the direction of the school by serving three-year terms on the school board. The seven trustees provide leadership and direction to the school's administrators and make important decisions on a wide array of topics, including strategic planning, curriculum, technology, personnel issues, finance, construction, facilities, and the student body.

Elected by the Bronxville community, each trustee plays a vital role in the continued excellence of the school.

The NPC was formed in 1936 to foster the election of trustees of The Bronxville School on a non-partisan basis. The NPC, which consists of three elected representatives from each of Bronxville's seven election districts, solicits qualified residents who are interested in serving as school trustee and nominates a slate of candidates to run in the school-district election each May.

To learn more, go to the NPC website, www.bronxvillenpc.com.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
