How Schools are Governed

The USD Board of Education welcomes you to their meeting. Copies of the agenda are available so you may more easily follow the proceedings.

All Board meetings are open to the public, except for executive sessions. Executive sessions may be called for the discussion of personnel matters, acquisition of property, negotiations, and confidential records.

The Board of Education meets at 6:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month at the District Office, 124 W. Central, El Dorado, KS. If the meeting date falls on a legal holiday and school is not in session, the Board will meet on the second Tuesday of that month. Special meetings may be called as needs arise.

Visitors are welcome to comment on agenda items. The Board president, under the "Comments from the Public" item on the agenda, will ask visitors wishing to comment to identify themselves and what they are wishing to speak upon, then to make their presentation. A time limit may be set.

The Board invites patrons of the district to attend its meeting and to be aware of Board functions. Further, the Board provides opportunities for individuals or groups to make presentations to the Board and be heard on issues of interest.

Requests for formal presentations to the Board should be placed with the superintendent at least five school days prior to the regular meeting date. The individual or group will be given opportunity to present material as a regular item on the agenda.

Items presented to the Board in this way will be acted upon if the Board feels that adequate information is available and/or adequate time for consideration has elapsed.
