Board of Education Meeting Types
Executive (Closed) Sessions
Called only for discussion of personnel, fiscal, or other matters that might reflect negatively on someone’s character or damage school district finances if publicly discussed, such as litigation, negotiations, or hearings involving students or employees. No voting may take place in the executive session; votes must occur in public.
Regular Board Meetings
At regular meetings, board members discuss and vote on board committee and administrative recommendations and on items that establish or amend district policy. The Board adopts policies to improve student performance and enhance school programs and acts on matters such as personnel, appropriations, school facilities, and recognition of excellence.
The Board meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month, September through May, and the first Tuesday only in June and August. The board does not normally meet during the month of July. Unless otherwise noted, meetings are at the School District Administrative Center. Board meetings are aired live on public radio (KUAC-FM, 89.9) and are televised live on GCI Cable, channel 14, and streamed live at streaming.k12northstar.org.
Scheduled for action on matters that cannot wait until the next regular meeting. Only the specific topic on the special meeting agenda can be discussed.
Scheduled for review of a subject in greater depth than is possible during a regular meeting. No voting or public comment takes place, but the public is welcome to listen.
