Upper Darby School District Board of School Directors
The Upper Darby School District is governed by a nine-member school board. The Superintendent of Schools serves as a tenth member of the board as a non-voting member. Each of the nine board members is a volunteer who is elected to office and resides in the Upper Darby School District.
