Questions during public participation portion of the meeting can be made by texting 330-317-5175.


Keep mindful that we are required to limit those in person attendance in our board meetings to 10 total.  This means we are allowed our 5 Board of Education Members, Superintendent, Treasurer, and 3 administrators.

If those wanting to address the board come they should wait in the HS commons and an administrator can switch places with them after their report has concluded. 

This means we can allow only 3 community members into the Board Meeting at a time.  We can have an additional 10 in overflow in the commons if we need to.
