Regular meetings of the Board of Education are
held in the library located at Gowana Middle School at 7:00 p.m. on
the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. Other meetings of the
board are scheduled as needed during the year. All meetings are open
to the public.
Meetings of the Board of Education follow a
prepared agenda. Copies of the agenda are available to the public
at each meeting and are posted at the district office on the
Friday prior to the meeting and on the website.
Shenendehowa's board conducts two types of meetings, business and study sessions. During a business session, the board officially votes on particular items on the agenda. During a study session, the board receives information however no action is taken.
The board also meets in executive session to discuss personnel matters, labor negotiations and other items that are confidential as defined by the Open Meeting Law of the State of New York. Executive sessions are closed to the public; however, any formal action on the passage of any resolution must be taken in open public session.
Persons wishing to address the Board of
Education can do so during the "public comment" section at the
beginning of the agenda. Speakers are requested to state their
name and address and identify the organization, if any, they
represent. The president may suggest that speakers confine their
remarks to a certain period of time in order to provide an
opportunity for others to speak.
Public comment provides a way for residents to address the Board of Education publicly. Residents wishing to "discuss" an issue or receive more information regarding a particular concern should contact a board member or a district administrator directly or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
