B-ESD School Board
Regular School Board Meetings
Regular meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. except in June and December. June and December Regular School Board meetings are held the second Monday at 6:00 p.m.. September's regular Board Meeting will be held via zoom.
Currently, school boards opting to host in-person public meetings under the Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA) may do so without restriction on capacity and without physical distancing requirements. However, face coverings are required in any indoor space. Additionally, Proclamation 20-25.15 prohibits “any governmental, commercial, or nonprofit entity or private party from allowing any individual to enter or remain in any indoor space under their control unless the individual is in compliance with the secretary of health’s face covering order and any subsequent amendments.
Local community members will always have the right to bring their grievances to their elected leaders, but in the case of these public health measures, they are not local decisions. Local boards of directors have broad discretion on the details of instructional delivery. They are not empowered, however, to override the legal authority of public health officers or the Governor in times of a public health emergency. Community actions that result in board actions that violate the law, including executive orders, will jeopardize school budgets, local school personnel, and ultimately the opening of school to in-person learning this fall and beyond.
In-person attendees must fill out a registration form. Attendees are encouraged to do so in advance: School Board Meeting Pre-Registration
