April Board meeting and open forum information

The Board of Education will host its regularly scheduled April meeting on Monday, April 12 at 6 p.m. at the District Office. Patrons are invited to tune in virtually through the district’s livestream or attend in-person. Please note, due to social distancing, in-person seating will be limited to those staff members being honored with an award or recognition and patrons who have signed up for open forum through the Open Forum Request Form (up to 20 participants). Masks are required to be worn at in-person meetings.

Patrons who would like to address the board may do so through Open Forum. Open Forum occurs at every regularly scheduled monthly board meeting and provides one hour (approx. 20 participants; 3 minutes each) of allotted time on the agenda for individuals to address the board in-person. If you would like to address the board, you must complete an Open Forum Request Form online. Request forms will open at noon one business day prior to the scheduled meeting and will close at noon on the day of the board meeting or once speaker capacity has been reached.
