There are three subcommittees of the Board of Education. Each committee has three sitting Board members (one of those acting as Chair) who are responsible for overseeing the committee’s tasks.

Meetings are held at various times throughout the month for initial discussion on school district topics. Agenda items discussed at these committee meetings are presented to the full Board at future Board of Education meetings. Although these meetings are open to the public, Personnel Services meetings can take place in Closed Session which is closed to the public.
