April 18, 2022 at 6:00 PM - Regular Meeting

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. 

The Buchanan Community Schools Board of Education recognizes the value of public comment on educational issues and the importance of allowing members of the public to express themselves on District matters as indicated during the public comment portion on the agenda. We request that each interested participant complete and turn in a Public Comment Card to ensure responses can be appropriately addressed.

Thank you for your support of Buchanan Community Schools!
