Board meetings are held for the purpose of acting upon recommendations of the Superintendent, adopting the annual budget and tax rates, adopting policies, and authorizing the spending of funds. Although any matter may come before the Board, most school-related issues are handled through administrative channels.
Regular Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month in the Education Service Center, 4800 W. Stones Crossing Rd. Occasionally when special meetings are called, or when a change in the time or place of a regular Board meeting becomes necessary, the change is announced to the public prior to the meeting.
All regular Board meetings, special Board meetings, and emergency meetings are open to the public. On occasion, closed executive sessions are held for the purpose of discussion. No official action may be taken in executive session. All Board action must be taken in public.
There are two different ways in which the public may address the Board:
A person who desires to address the Board concerning a scheduled public agenda item must register before the start of the meeting. A registration sheet will be available at least thirty (30) minutes prior to the meeting. Registration will close five (5) minutes before the scheduled start of the meeting.
A person who desires to be on the agenda must notify the Superintendent at least four (4) working days prior to the meeting. When delegations appear, only one (1) person from each delegation shall be heard.
