Open Meetings & Executive Sessions

All meetings of the board are open to the public, excluding executive sessions, which are for discussion purposes only. During an executive session, per Ohio law, boards may only discuss:

  1. Personnel matters;
  2. The sale or purchase of property; and,
  3. Legal matters.

Additionally, Ohio law requires any vote by the school board must be done in a public forum. Video recordings of our past meetings can be found here, thanks to our partnership with
