Board Meetings

The School Board meets every second and fourth Wednesday of each month. The first Wednesday meeting of the month is the board's regular business meeting. The board meeting held on the fourth Wednesday of the month is a scheduled board work session.

Procedure for Addressing the Board

If a citizen has a question about the operation of the schools, he/she is encouraged to contact the teacher, principal and Superintendent in line of progression. Experience has shown that this is the best procedure to follow for the most satisfactory results.

While it is not the Board's intent to stifle public participation in its meetings, it is apparent that if the Board is going to complete its agenda within a reasonable time, and more importantly, in a businesslike manner, it will be necessary to implement more formal operational procedures for the meeting.

  1. A citizen wishing to have an item considered for inclusion on the agenda should request same of the Superintendent or Board President no later than 5 school days prior to a regular meeting of the Board.
  2. A citizen wishing to make a brief statement to express A viewpoint, or ask a question regarding an item on the agenda, should secure permission from the Board President prior to the meeting. There will be a. 3 minute time limit per person, per subject. This policy shall not prohibit the Board President from extending or shortening the time limit.
  3. When called upon, the person wishing to address the chair, shall stand, address the Board stating their name, and then, their concern or question.
  4. The Board, in conducting its business in an orderly manner, can best proceed without undue interruptions or other interference. The presiding officer has the right and obligation to terminate prolonged or irrelevant speeches or discussion.
  5. If it appears there is much interest in one particular agenda item, the chair may call for a special meeting to discuss that one item. The Board meeting will then proceed to an orderly fashion to accomplish the business for that session.

Grievances

  1. Other supervisors or administrators responsible;
