SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS

What is Done at Board Meetings?
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.
