Board of Education



The Board of Education is a public body and, as such, the Open Meetings Law requires school board meetings to be open to the public; however, public may be excluded from properly convened executive sessions and other meetings exempted under the law. Members of the public are welcomed and encouraged to attend and observe open meetings.
 
Meetings are generally held monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. on the 3rd Floor of the Columbus School located at 164 Hawley Street, Binghamton, NY.  See below for the schedule.

Sometimes 
it is necessary to call a special meeting or change a regularly scheduled meeting date, time or location.  To confirm, please contact the district clerk ([email protected] or 762-8100 x319).

Notices of meetings are provided to the news media and posted on the bulletin board at the district’s Central Offices, 164 Hawley St., Binghamton, NY, no later than the Friday before each meeting.

T
he board has a policy of allowing members of the public to address them regarding school district business under “Privilege of the Floor” which is time limited to 3 minutes; however, the discussion may not include matters involving privacy issues that are protected by law.
 
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, any proposed resolution, law, rule, regulation, policy or any amendment scheduled to be the subject of public discussion by the Board of Education during an open meeting ("agenda items") shall be made available to the public prior to the meeting.

Agenda items received by the district clerk at least 48 hours prior to such meeting shall be posted below and shall remain posted for seven (7) business days after such meeting.

*  Requests for copies of agenda items must be made to the Records Access Officer at least one (1) business day before the board meeting.  Reasonable fees will apply (See Policy #3310).
