The State Board of Education regularly meets twice a month. Working sessions are held on the first Wednesday of the month from 5:00pm to 6:30pm and public meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month, starting at 5:30pm.
While working sessions are open to the public, individuals and representatives of organizations are not permitted to speak or participate. However, individuals and representatives of organizations may submit written testimony for consideration by the Board. Written testimony must be submitted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting.
All students, parents, and educators, and community members are invited to provide testimony at public meetings. Individuals and representatives of organizations who wish to comment at a public meeting are asked to notify Board staff in advance by phone at (202) 741-0888 or by email at email@example.com no later than 48 hours in advance of the meeting. An electronic copy of testimony must be received no later than 48 hours prior to the meeting. Individuals are asked to furnish their names, addresses, telephone numbers, and organizational affiliation, if any. Individuals must also bring at least fifteen (15) copies of their written statements with them to the meeting.
Public meetings air live on District Knowledge Network (DKN) Comcast Channel 99, RCN Channel 18, and Fios Channel 12. Webcasts of public meetings should be posted within 10 days of each public meeting.
The record for each working session and public meeting will be documented via the SBOE website. Agendas, meeting documents, testimony, reports and resolutions to be considered for all meetings after April 1, 2015 can be found here.
