The Garrison Board of Education establishes and releases its board meeting schedule no later than the start of the fiscal school year on July 1st. Although the meeting schedule is subject to change as needed, the Board generally holds one or two meetings each month, usually on Wednesdays, beginning at 7:00 PM. In accordance with the Open Meetings Law of the State of New York, the public is notified of scheduled meetings and Board of Education Meetings are open to the public. The list of scheduled board meetings may be found in the Library on BoardDocs and is posted on the District website. Board meetings are typically held in the Garrison School library or gymnasium at 1100 Route 9D in Garrison.
PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 public health emergency, Board meetings may continue be held virtually via Zoom Webinar.
Zoom Webinar information is posted on the homepage of the District website prior to each meeting. Attendees are required to register and enter the required passcode posted with the meeting announcement.
BOARD MEETING AGENDAS
Board meeting agendas are generally posted on BoardDocs the Friday prior to each scheduled meeting and are available to the public. Although it is not the Board's common practice, items listed on the meeting agendas can be subject to change up to and during board meetings. Members of the public are encouraged to attend meetings and participate in the public comment period. Specific information regarding the Board's policy for public comment is listed on the meeting agenda.
In accordance with Open Meetings Law, public documents to be discussed by the Board will be made available within the posted agendas on BoardDocs.
