The School District is governed by a seven member elected Board. Board members serve four year terms without any compensation and they elect
their own officers. Meetings are generally held on the second Wednesday of every month. Throughout the regular school year meetings will be held at
Colin Powell Middle School. Regular Open Sessions convenes at 6:30 PM and the Closed Session convenes at 7:30 PM.

The Board of Education may receive reports in advance of the meeting. The majority of these reports are informational in nature. Any item that the Board
of Education is to take action on is done at the open meeting of the Board. For the convenience of the guests, action items are listed with a brief
summary of the nature of the item the Board will consider.

In order for all community members to be heard and to be able to conduct the business of the District, comments are limited to three minutes.
