The Brandywine Heights School Board is comprised of nine residents elected to terms of four years each. School Directors are not paid for their services. A member may run for re-election to successive terms. Voting takes place at the regular May primaries and November general elections in odd numbered years. When vacancies occur unexpectedly, the board may appoint a replacement to serve until the next municipal general election. The district solicitor, secretary and treasurer are appointed by the board.
