Board meetings to remain virtual in April

Printer-friendly version

The Board of Education will hold another virtual meeting when it is scheduled to meet next on Monday, April 13, Director of Communications Perry Hibner announced.

The School Board also anticipates that its regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, April 27 will also be held remotely unless Governor Evers lifts the Safer-at-Home order, Hibner said.

The School Board held its first virtual meeting on Monday, March 30. Board president Bob Green presided over the meeting at the District Services Center, while other Board members participated remotely. Evers issued the Safer-at-Home order on March 22.

Residents who wish to address the Board can still submit something to Cheryl Janssen. The District is requesting that residents email Janssen by noon on the day of the meeting. Green will then read all community correspondence near the beginning of the virtual meeting.

Superintendent Dana Monogue said recently that regular meeting agendas will be pared down to only essential discussion and action items. School reports, which still needed to be done for a handful of District schools, will be postponed and may be added to agendas in the summer should the order be lifted and meetings are allowed to resume at the District Services Center.

The District doesn't plan to stream live video of the virtual meetings, but will continue to make the video available on its YouTube Channel within 12-48 hours after each meeting ends.
