OPEN PUBLIC MEETINGS ACT NOTICE

The New Jersey Open Public Meetings Law was enacted to insure the right of the public to have advance notice of and to attend the meetings of public bodies at which any business affecting their interests is discussed or acted upon. In accordance with the provisions of this Act, the Brick Township Board of Education has caused notice of this meeting to be posted on the Administration Office Bulletin Board, the official District website and Channel BTV-20, and sent to the Asbury Park Press, the Brick Times, the Star Ledger and Municipal Clerk's Office.

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.
