Board of Education Meetings

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. Starting times for meetings and agenda items are approximate.

Public Comment

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.

Interpreter Requests

To request Spanish or sign language interpretation at a Board of Education of Frederick County meeting, please email Kathryn.Rich@fcps.org. We request 10 business days notice in order to secure sign language interpreters and 5 business days for Spanish.
