USD #495 Board of Education Meeting Protocol

The school board will use the following protocol to conduct all future USD 495 Board Meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic. To view the agenda for USD 495 Board of Education Meetings please visit the following link:

Board Members will either be physically present adhering to social distancing guidelines or will join the meeting via Zoom.  The board president, board clerk, and superintendent will be physically present adhering to social distancing guidelines for board meetings.

The principals and anyone else invited to the meeting will join the Zoom link.

The board meetings will be streamed at for public viewing.  If Public Comments is an agenda item, patrons wishing to address the Board, must contact the board clerk 72 hours prior to the board meeting to request an opportunity to speak. This is to provide public participation in accordance to USD 495 Board Policy BCBI Public Participation. If approved by the Board President, patrons will be provided with a link to the meeting.

If the Board chooses to go into executive session, they will virtually leave the Zoom boardroom and be placed in a private Zoom room for discussion.  Upon completion of the executive session, the Board will be brought back into the original boardroom.

All Board minutes will be posted on the website, just as we have done in the past.
