    Information about School Board Meetings

    School Board meetings are established in compliance with Illinois School Code, The Open Meetings Act, and Public Policy. It is required that board discussion be held in public and board action taken in public. The Open Meetings Act provides authorized exceptions to this requirement, which allows the Board to close a meeting to the public. However, closing a meeting still necessitates providing notice of its purpose and requires any final actions be taken during open session. Regular meetings are typically held August through June on the third or fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:15 p.m. Click here to view the 2020-2021 Regular Meeting Schedule.
