Board to meet once a month

Thursday, December 27, 2012 by ELSA KERSCHNER in Local News

School board meetings for the coming year will be different following the Dec. 5 directors' meeting.

Much of the work will be done in committees with no action taken. There will be only regular meeting a month, Superintendent Mary Anne Wright said.

The committee meetings, as well as the regular meetings, will be open to the public, with the exception of any item that needs to be discussed in executive session.

Public comment will be heard at the beginning and end of each committee meeting, though the comment should apply to the subject of the committee being visited.
