BoardDocs
Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, the District started using BoardDocs, which is a web-based system to electronically distribute board meeting agendas to the Board of Education and to the public. Agendas are normally available to the public one day in advance of a meeting. Historical agendas and minutes dating back to January 2013 can also be accessed. BoardDocs can be accessed here

Special Board meetings and Board committee meetings are called as needed.  Under Ohio law, the Board may hold Executive Sessions to discuss personnel matters, litigation, purchase of property, negotiations, matters required to be kept confidential by federal law or state statutes, and details of security arrangements.  Executive Sessions are used for discussion only.  All Board action must be taken in public session.
