Board members



Pursuant to Chapter 241, Article 4, as amended, Section 3 of the Rhode Island Public Laws of 2012, effective January 1, 2013, the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education (the “Board of Governors”) and the Rhode Island Board of Regents for Elementary and Secondary Education (the “Board of Regents”) were merged into the newly-created Board of Education, a public corporation of the State.  The Board of Education, as successor to the Board of Governors, has assumed all of the powers, rights, duties and privileges previously vested in the Board of Governors, including legal title (in trust for the State) to all real and personal property owned by and/or under the control or in the custody of the Board of Governors and the Board of Regents, which have now ceased to exist.
