Scotia-Glenville adheres to the Freedom of Information and Open Meetings laws
The Freedom of Information Law, effective January 1, 1978, reaffirms your right to know how your government operates. It provides rights of access to records reflective of governmental decisions and policies that affect the lives of every New Yorker. Here's an easy-to-read brochure about the laws from the Committee on Open Government. Find out more about Scotia-Glenville's procedures involving the laws.
In accordance with recent changes to the state Open Meetings Law, supplemental files to Board of Education meeting agendas will be posted in advance of each meeting. They will be accessible by clicking on the highlighted links on the posted agendas.
The revisions to the Open Meetings Law address two types of records that are “scheduled to be the subject of a discussion” during an open meeting. :
▪ Those that are required to be made available pursuant to the Freedom of Information Law; and
▪ Proposed resolutions, law, rules, regulations, policies or amendments thereto.
When either type of document is scheduled to be discussed during an open meeting, the law requires that they be made available to the public, to the extent practicable, either prior to or at the meeting. A school district or government body may either make copies available at the meeting for a fee, typically 25 cents per page, or may post them on the agency's maintained website prior to the meeting.
The Scotia-Glenville Central School District agrees with the Committee on Open Government that "through the disclosure of records scheduled to be discussed during open meetings, the public can gain the ability to better understand and appreciate the issues faced by government."
