Board of Education Meetings During the COVID-19 Pandemic

In response to the Stay at Home Order issued by The Ohio Department of Health from Health Director Acton, the Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools (GJPS) Board of Education will meet via video conferencing. This complies with H.B. 197, authorizing public school boards to conduct open meetings using teleconference or other video and electronic technology during the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.
