Board of Education 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. Starting times for meetings and agenda items are approximate.
The Board welcomes and encourages public comment. With the exception of confidential and personnel related matters, and issues pending in appeals to a local or State Board, individuals may speak about matters relating to the school system. If individuals have specific concerns relating to the actions of staff members, such concerns may be communicated to the superintendent who will address the concern with the appropriate staff or if the concern is about the superintendent an individual may share that concern with the Board through written or private verbal communication.
If you are speaking as an individual you have up to 3 minutes and I ask that when the buzzer goes off that you complete your thoughts. On behalf of an organization you have up to 5 minutes.
