Meetings of the Board of Education
Parents and community members are encouraged to attend meetings of the Board of Education. The Board establishes its meeting dates on a regular basis. Special circumstances may result in the change of meeting dates, time or location and such changes are well publicized in the Post Journal or School Newsletters.
Meetings follow a planned agenda specified by laws and regulations and, at certain times in the agenda, the Board President may recognize district residents who wish to make a short statement (not more than 5 minutes in length.) In addition, at the close of each open session, the President generally offers an opportunity for any further input from the public attending the meeting.
Prior to each meeting, the board members receive a “packet of materials” which includes the agenda and any explanatory materials which are needed in advance to enable them to make rational decisions. This gives the members time to study the items that they will be reviewing at the next meeting. Some items on the agenda may have already been introduced and discussed at previous board meetings; therefore, action which may appear to be routine is well considered by members of the Board.
The Board delegates certain responsibilities to the Superintendent of Schools and may ask the Superintendent to make reports and recommendations to the Board.
The Falconer Central School Board of Education meets regularly the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. One meeting per year is held in each of the two elementary buildings (TBD); otherwise, all meetings are held in the Middle/High School Board Room.
