All of our school board meetings are open to the public. Regularly scheduled meetings for our school board generally occur on the third Tuesday of the month and are held in the Hardwick Elementary School Library.
Special meetings are occasionally held for specific purposes and are always announced in advance. The board also participates in four carousel board meetings each year, in which all eight member school districts within the supervisory union come together to conduct SU-wide business as the OSSU Board.
State law requires that school board meetings are conducted in accordance with the Vermont Open Meeting Law and Robert’s Rules of Order. All Board business takes place in public except for discussion on some specific topics where the Board meets in Executive Session. The Vermont School Board Association offers a good summary on executive session and open meeting law.
