Our Board Meetings
Almost everything we do, we do at meetings that are open to the public. Meetings are held one or two times each month, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Meetings are held in the Garrison School library, 1100 Route 9D in Garrison.
Under the Open Meeting Law of the State of New York, public documents to be discussed by the Board will be made available upon request. Contact the Superintendent's office. Discussions of personnel matters, contract negotiations, and litigation ‑ proposed, pending, or actual - must be discussed confidentially in Executive Session. These are usually held after the regular meetings.
Board Meeting Agendas
Our agendas are posted in BoardDocs on our website, www.gufs.org, usually on the Friday before a Board meeting. They are also distributed at Board meetings.
The usual order of business at a regular meeting is as follows:
· Call to Order
· Superintendent's Report
· Principal's Report
· Financial Reports
· Consent Agenda (Approval of Minutes, CSE recommendations, and routine personnel actions and business transactions)
· Discussion Items
· Action Items
· Public Comment
· Board Comment
We welcome public attendance at our meetings and will make every effort to accommodate public comment.
Prior to meetings, the Superintendent distributes extensive information about all agenda items to Board of Education members.
Board Meeting Minutes
Board actions at meetings are recorded in minutes that are available to the public in BoardDocs on our website, www.gufs.org, and from the Superintendent’s office. Meetings are aired on local public cable channel 78 on Mondays at noon, 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
