Policies regarding students, staff, educational programs, physical plants and equipment, and relations with the community are set by the Board of Education. The Board also established the budget for the District and negotiates with employee groups and their unions.
A Regular School Board meeting will usually be held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 P.M. It is anticipated that Board committees will be scheduled the second week of each month. All regular meetings of the Board are open to the public. Special Board meetings called by the President are also open. Executive sessions (special meetings called which may relate to personnel matters, negotiations, buildings and sites) are closed to the public in accordance with Wisconsin Statutes.
All regular Board meetings held at the Educational Support Center (ESC) are cablecast live and are recorded for repeat cablecast on Cable Channel 20, the District’s own television channel, available to those who subscribe to local cable television company services. All regular Board meetings held at District sites other than the ESC are recorded for playback on Cable Channel 20.
