Meetings & Citizen Involvement

Public Meetings  The Board of Education holds regular public meetings throughout the year, typically at 191 South East Street, Frederick. The Board welcomes citizens at these sessions, Board of Education committee meetings, and other forums concerning education matters of community interest.   Some meetings may be closed to the public if they concern confidential matters. Maryland law restricts the Board’s ability to meet in closed session, and the Board strives to keep meetings as open as possible.

Public Comment  The Board welcomes and encourages public comment and provides opportunities for public comment during regular meetings in the afternoon and evening sessions. With the exception of confidential matters, citizens may speak about matters relating to the school system. Comments are limited to three minutes per person, and one individual per organization will be allotted five minutes. For regular public meetings, a sign-up sheet for public comment will be available 30 minutes before each afternoon and evening session. Board members present at Board of Education committee meetings will also take public comment at those meetings.

Please review the Handbook for Citizen Involvement.
