District 97 is holding board meetings in accordance with the state's current COVID-19 guidelines. Regular board meetings are currently being held on site for District 97 Board of Education members and administrative staff only. Given COVID-19 considerations and the space constraints of the board room, the administration has determined that it is not feasible to allow members of the public to attend the meeting in-person.
Beginning in January 2022, all District 97 board meetings will be live-streamed to the district's YouTube channel. Attendees will no longer utilize Zoom.
Meeting agendas are posted at https://www.op97.org/boe/meeting-packets.
Members of the public will be offered an opportunity to address the board during the public comment portion of the meeting via video/telephone access with prior notice to the District. For those who wish to address the board live during the meeting, please email [email protected] before 4 p.m. on the day prior to the meeting and include your telephone number. Due to the new live-streaming format, the district will call you when it is time to speak. Public comment typically occurs between 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Alternatively, members of the public may submit public comments by email prior to the board meeting, to be announced during the public comment portion of the meeting. Email submissions should be made by 7 p.m. on the date of the meeting and sent to [email protected].
