Executive Session

Ohio's Sunshine Law requires that all acts and deliberations of Boards of Education be conducted in public meetings. The exception is called executive session, where Board Members confer privately. No action of any kind can be taken during executive session.

Topics which may be discussed include: personnel matters, property purchase for public purposes, pending or imminent court action, negotiations with employees, matters to be kept confidential by federal or state statutes and specialized details of security arrangements.



Public Input

The Woodmore Board of Education wholeheartedly believes that public participation enhances our decisions and helps us connect with the residents of our community.  

If you wish to speak on an issue, you must raise your hand to be called on to speak.  If you speak out of turn, blurt out comments, or cause any disruptions to the Board process, you will be given a warning.  If you continue to be disruptive to the meeting, you will be asked to leave.  

We ask that any comments be kept brief and concise and related only to the issue being discussed.  We will not revisit items on the agenda that have passed discussion.  We will not require a time limit, but simply ask that you be considerate to the fact that we are trying to move the meeting along in a timely manner for the benefit of all in attendance
