Former Board of Education Agendas and Minutes

Click this link for 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 Board of Education Agendas.

            The Board of Education

            The Scotia-Glenville Board of Education is composed of seven non-paid members who serve three-year terms. Members are elected by the voters in the district to establish policy and govern the schools. The board works cooperatively with the Scotia-Glenville Central School District to ensure all students are provided with the highest quality educational experience possible.

            The Board of Education typically meets on the second and fourth Mondays of the month (though that may be altered in months with Monday holidays). All meetings begin at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Meetings are held at the various school locations throughout the Scotia-Glenville community. Locations may change, so please check back before a meeting to confirm the location.

            Board adopts goals for the 2022-23 school year

            1.      The Board of Education, in conjunction with the administrative team, will explore alternative learning services for all students in the areas of career and technical education, alternative programs, distance learning, and student support services.

            2.      The Board of Education, in conjunction with the superintendent and information officer, will explore means of communicating with parents and the community during regular business and emergencies.

            3.      The Board of Education, in conjunction with the superintendent, will plan and conduct community forums for the purpose of gathering feedback and information relative to school safety procedures, behavioral health needs in the community, and pre-budget planning.

            4.    Critically review all district policies through a Policy Review Committee and make recommendations for updates, inserts, and deletes within legal and ethical bounds. Policy Review Committee will meet as allowed by educational law and report back to the board during the course of the year as the agenda allows.

            • Priority 1 – Review policies not reflecting to our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion standards.
            • Priority 2 – Review policies to ensure safe environments for learning, meeting, activities, etc.
            • Priority 3 – Review DASA reporting policy and accountability thereof
            • Priority 4 – Review policies related to individuals with disabilities
            • Priority 5 – Review policies frequently referenced by the community with focus on clarity.

            The New York State School Boards Association has created this webpage entitled The School Board Member Experience to answer questions from new and potential school board members. Check it out!

            To run for office:

            Board members serve three-year terms with no salary. They are responsible for overseeing the activities and policies of the school district. Meetings are typically held at 7 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month.

            Here is an overview from the New York State School Board’s Association that details the responsibilities of a Board of Education member.

            New York State Open Meetings Law

            In accordance with recent changes to the state Open Meetings Law, the following supplemental files are provided from the Board of Education’s meeting.

            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.”

            Here is a link about the Open Meetings Law:

            New York State’s Freedom of Information Law

            The Freedom of Information Law 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. The law preserves the Committee on Open Government, which was created by the enactment of the original Freedom of Information Law in 1974.

            Here is more information about the Freedom of Information Law.
