Darien Public Schools Board of Education

The Darien Board of Education is pleased to announce the appointment of Robin Nelson to the Board.  Robin, a registered Republican, will fill a vacant Republican seat with a term that ends November 2024. She comes to the Board with a strong history of volunteerism to the District and Community. In addition to welcoming Robin, the Board of Education would like to thank all the candidates who participated in the process. We had a great group of applicants who each understood the value of our school system and the importance our community places on volunteerism and service.
