Board of Education Moves to New System for Agenda, Minutes, Policies and Documents

In an effort to make Board of Education meetings more efficient, transparent and paperless, Schodack CSD has moved to an online system called BoardDocs that eliminates the need for large printed packets for each meeting.

About the Board of Education

The nine elected members of the Schodack CSD Board of Education are charged with setting the goals and establishing the policies to create a successful school district for our community’s children. Board members are unpaid volunteers serving three-year terms.

 

Members of the board adopt the annual budget and make decisions on a range of educational concerns. They are not responsible for the day-to-day operations of Schodack’s schools. Parents are encouraged to contact the building principal or appropriate administrator to address specific school concerns. If the issue remains unresolved, please contact the school superintendent.

 

The community is encouraged to attend meetings to learn about the educational issues the Board is considering. We value your interest and encourage you to attend and voice any questions or concerns you may have about our schools.

Public Participation at Board Meetings

The Board of Education provides residents an opportunity to speak at the beginning and end of each meeting. The Board President will recognize individuals who would like to speak, asking them to introduce themselves and identify the organization they are representing (if any).

 

Individuals who would like to speak are asked to keep their comments or questions as brief and concise as possible in order to allow the Board of Education to conduct the business portion of its meeting. The Board President has the responsibility to stop the public comment period if speakers use inappropriate or derogatory language.

Executive Sessions

Boards of Education sometimes have to meet privately in executive session to discuss issues such as personnel matters, potential litigation and employee contract negotiations. Only Board members, the Superintendent and individuals the Board needs to speak with are allowed in these meetings. If the Board needs to make an official action, however, the action must take place during the public portion of the meeting.
