Agenda
A. OPENING OF MEETING BY PRESIDENT
Description:  We welcome you to a meeting of the Buchanan Community Schools Board of Education. 

All regular meetings have been posted on our district website, in our central office, and in each district school building. Tonight's agenda has been posted on our website and emailed out to the BCS Board of Education Community Subscription. Our school board members receive the agenda and all supporting documents for reports and action items several days prior to this scheduled meeting, so they can review information, prepare questions or comments, and are ready to participate fully in the discussions and votes that encompass the duties of their office. 

This meeting is a meeting of the Board of Education in public for the purpose of conducting the school district’s business and is not to be considered a public community meeting. 

There is a time for regular public participation during the meeting as indicated in agenda item H. If you wish to make a presentation to the Board, please fill out the Google form located on our district website before item H on the agenda. This form opens for comment at the beginning of the meeting and is turned off once we get through the public comment section. You may also call into the meeting to speak by calling  240-804-7734; PIN: 203-657-355#. The board will announce when we are ready for public comment, please un-mute yourself at that time.

Thank you for your support of Buchanan Community Schools!
