The Board of Education may be required to go into Executive Session (closed door) during any regular or special meeting to discuss matters that involve personnel, labor negotiations, litigation or matters in which details cannot be publicly disclosed. The Sunshine Laws or the Open Meeting Law of New York State define the subject matter which may be discussed in Executive Session.
Members of the audience may address the Board during two (2) public speaking portions of the agenda ( at the beginning and at the end of the meeting). There will be a sign-in sheet available and speakers must sign-in prior to the start of the meeting to be recognized. There is a three (3) minute time limit per individual, with a total time limit of fifteen (15) minutes per public speaking session. This time is not meant to be a question and answer period, but a chance for the public to express their opinions, make comments, express concerns or ask questions for future responses on agenda items only. The Board of Education will not act on concerns expressed by the public at the meeting, but will take such issues under consideration and advisement for further study and action.
The Board welcomes public input and encourages community involvement in decisions that affect the education of our children.
The Board of Education invites and welcomes all individuals to attend the monthly meetings to stay in touch and informed of what is happening in your schools!
