Board of Education
The Cuyahoga Valley Career Center School Board is a policy-making body and is legally responsible for the educational functions of the school district. The School Board formulates operating policies concerning the employment of all personnel, educational programs, district finance, building programs, instructional materials, and public relations.
Our board is comprised of delegates from each of our eight associate school districts plus a rotating member from one district, eliminating the possibility of a tie vote. The School Board desires to be responsive to the needs and concerns of community members. Questions or concerns from the community should be directed to the Superintendent or School Board President. You can reach the Board of Education president, Gary Suchocki, by sending an email to Email Mr. Suchocki; or the superintendent, Dave Mangas, at Email Mr. Mangas.
The School Board meets once a month, typically on the last Thursday of the month, at 6:30 PM. Parents and residents are cordially invited to attend school board meetings. Click here for meeting dates.
