Regularly scheduled public meetings

The public is invited to attend regularly scheduled meetings and can offer comment according to specified guidelines. Meetings usually occur on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month; in months when there are school holiday breaks, only one meeting is scheduled. Schedule changes are publicized on this website and on social media.

The executive session begins at 3:00 p.m., unless otherwise noted. The start time of the public business meeting is moving from 6 p.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Tuesday, July 25.  The school board is testing the new start time through December, public comment sign-up period will remain the same, 4:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. or until the ten speaking opportunities have been taken. The goal of the new start time is to allow the public more access to the board’s deliberative process.  

During the 5 to 6 p.m. hour, the board will take up the consent agenda (with exception of personnel agenda) and committee reports.

The agenda for the next meeting is posted online (to "BoardDocs") on the Saturday preceding the meeting date.
