The School Board meets as a whole, on the second Tuesday of each month, with the exception of December, when the meeting is held on the first Tuesday according to School Code. This meeting is called the Regular Meeting and is for the Board to take action on agenda items following review and discussion based on committee reports and recommendations. The School Board may take official action on any matter at any meeting.
