Board of Education[edit]

The Board of Education (BOE) is the authoritative legislative body of the school district. It approves policy and funding; sets committees and district priorities; and approves employment (including the Superintendent) within the district, among other things. The BOE is made up of seven members:

  • Frank Zwack-President
  • Gina Goodermote-Vice President
  • Katie Fiske
  • Rachel Finney
  • Elizabeth Miller
  • Jeff Paine
  • Jim Willis


The Superintendent is Stephen Young. The Superintendent is the Chief Administrative Officer of the district and is responsible for the day to day operations of the district in addition to administering policies of the Board.


The district is currently served by one elementary school: Berlin Elementary School. Berlin Junior/Senior High School is the lone upper level building.[1] There are three principals in the district: one for the elementary, one for the middle school and one for the high school.[1]
