Meetings of the Board are open to the public, we encourage our community members to attend. Executive Session, during which Board members may discuss only specific business items defined by Ohio law, is the only session closed to the public. Since Ohio law states that all school board voting must be done publicly, executive sessions are for discussion purposes only. Occasionally, the Board will hold a special meeting when District matters need immediate attention.
