Offsite Board Meeting Specifications:

The Board discussed specifications for future offsite Board meetings. The topics discussed covered the pros and cons of streaming Board meetings away from the District Administrative Center on YouTube and what items, including public participation, to put on these meeting agendas.

It was decided to keep the focus of the Board meetings in the schools on the hosting school and its students. USD 230 will continue to not stream these specific Board meetings on YouTube, attempt to keep discussion and action items on these agenda limited, and will not have public participation during these offsite meetings.
