Waverly Community Schools Board of Education
WELCOME TO A MEETING OF YOUR BOARD OF EDUCATION
The board and district staff appreciate your interest in our meetings and in the school system. Public participation and open lines of communication are vital to a successful educational environment for our schools.
WHAT HAPPENS AT A BOARD MEETING
Our goal is to conduct necessary business while allowing adequate time for the public to express concerns and opinions. Each meeting has an agenda. Agenda and minutes of school board meetings are posted to the district website on the Agenda & Minutes page.
PUBLIC COMMENT AT BOARD MEETINGS
There are two opportunities for public comment: Citizens who wish to address agenda or non-agenda items will have an opportunity at the beginning of the meeting, as well as near the end of the meeting.
At the appropriate point in the agenda, the board president will request public comment. Citizens are required to limit comments to three minutes. A designated timekeeper will communicate to the individual who is addressing the board at three minutes. The board values public comment and input; however, the board meeting format is designed to facilitate the agenda and, therefore, restricts board members from engaging in conversation with speakers or immediately responding to questions. Questions and concerns may be addressed by the board later in the agenda and may be assigned for follow-up by the board or superintendent at a later date. Citizens are reminded it is unlawful to mention the name of students when discussing behavior or other incidents.
WHEN DOES THE BOARD MEET?
Board meetings will normally be conducted the third Monday of each month at 6:30 P.M. in the Board of Education Conference Room in the Administration Center located at 515 Snow Rd., Lansing, MI 48917, unless otherwise noted on the meeting notice. Notice of all meetings are posted in accordance with the Open Meetings Act and are on the district website.
All meetings of the board of education are open to the public except those specifically exempted by law. These closed sessions may be a discussion of negotiations or pertain to personnel or student matters.
