The Board of Education meets twice each month at 7 p.m. unless otherwise amended by future Board action. Additional special meetings/study sessions may be scheduled as needed.

The board encourages community attendance at its monthly meetings, as stakeholder participation is important as the district strives to maintain excellent educational programs and seeks new opportunities for our students. Your feedback is valuable to us and we encourage you to share your views on subjects related to our schools. Most questions and concerns can be addressed by contacting the classroom teacher or building administrator. Please refer to the District Communications Guide for more contact information.
