The Region 1 Board of Education oversees and develops the budget for three regional activities: Housatonic Valley Regional High School, shared administrative services supplied by the Central Office staff including the Superintendent and Business Office, and Pupil Services or special education and related services. The local K-8 school, Sharon Center School, is overseen by the Sharon Board of Education. The other five towns in Region 1 each have their own K-8 school overseen by their Board of Education. Each town has one representative on the Region 1 Board. The Sharon representative to the Region 1 Board is elected for a two-year term.
