Board Meetings

Board Meetings

Senate Bill 1108, recently passed by the Senate, the House of Representatives, and signed by Governor Whitmer, amends the Open Meetings Act (OMA) to permit virtual meetings and allow individual board members to virtually participate and vote in public meetings under specific circumstances.

As amended, OMA allows for the continuation of virtual meetings for any circumstances through February 25, 2021, and provides a retroactive application to deem as valid all virtual meetings that have taken place since March 18, 2020, under the now defunct executive orders.
 
Our meetings will be held virtually until further notice to maximize the opportunity for community members to observe the work of the Board of Education.

All regular and special meetings of the board shall be open to the public.  The board desires to hear the viewpoints of citizens, students, and employee organizations and shall schedule times at all meetings for them to be heard. All comments must be submitted one hour before the scheduled meeting is called to order.

When addressing the board during public comment state your name, address, and comments (limited to three minutes).

Additional information:
  • Audience time is not intended as a forum for public debate
