The Board of Education meets in regular sessions held twice a month. Meeting dates, place and times are established by the Board at its first meeting in January. Occasional changes are published on the web site and if time allows, in the Hudson Hub-Times and on the HCTV bulletin board. To verify a meeting date, please call the Superintendent's Office at 330-653-1216 or the Treasurer's Office at 330-653-1270.
The Board typically meets the second and fourth Mondays of every month at 7:30 p.m. in the Media Center of the High School at 2500 Hudson-Aurora Road. The dates for 2012-2013 are also listed on the Web site main page calendar.
Special Meetings may be called by the Board, with a 24-hour notification to the media.
The first meeting of each month has been designated as a working-discussion meeting; the second meeting of each month will be a more formal business meeting. Most actions of the Board will be taken at the second meeting.
Agendas of each meeting are available for the public on the BOE web page and at the meeting.
All regular and special meetings of the Board of Education are open to the public under the Sunshine Law of the State of Ohio 121.22. They are also viewed during the week on HCTV channel 26, Hudson's Cable TV station. By law, the Board may also vote in an open session to hold an executive session, which is closed to the public. When the Board votes to hold an executive session, it must state the purpose of that session.
Topics eligible for executive session are: review of personnel matters such as dismissal, promotion, demotion or compensation; the purchase or sale of property, negotiations; and conferences with legal counsel regarding pending court action. Any actions taken by the Board that result from these sessions must be taken at a public meeting.
