SALUTE TO THE FLAG AND MOMENT OF SILENCE

STATEMENT TO THE PUBLIC

Often it may appear to members of our audience that the Board of Education act with very little comment and in many cases a unanimous vote.  Please understand that before a matter is placed on the agenda at a public meeting, the administration has thoroughly reviewed the matter with the Superintendent of Schools, discussed it in appropriate BOE committees, and only then, if the Superintendent is satisfied that the matter is ready to be presented to the full Board of Education, it is placed on the agenda for action at a public meeting.  Board of Education members are given advance notice to review the agenda and through the Chair, ask questions or voice concerns.  In rare instances, when necessary, matters are presented to the Board of Education for discussion at the same meeting that final action may be taken.
