School Board Meetings

The meetings of the Davis County School Board are open to the public and it is important for parents and community members to attend and participate in these meetings.

Schedule

The Board typically meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month. However, meetings can be rescheduled or cancelled so be certain to check the Official Davis School Board Schedule. We also post the school board meetings on our Davis for Local Education Calendar.

Meeting Format

Each school board meeting can consist of two parts: Workshop and Formal Meeting. Both of these are open to the public. The Workshop is an open discussion time for board members to gather information and ask questions on subjects that will be up for vote or action in the Formal Meeting. The Formal Meeting immediately follows the Workshop, often with a short break between.

Note: Not all school board meetings will have a Formal Meeting scheduled.

Public Comment

Starting in the Spring of 2015, the School Board has implemented a Public Comment period for each meeting. The last 15 minutes of both the Workshop and Formal Meeting are scheduled for public comment.

DLE Involvement

Davis for Local Education helps coordinate participation at these meetings for parents that are concerned with local control of education. Participation can include everything from just showing up (wear GREEN to show you stand with Davis for Local Education) to addressing the board. We also have volunteers that are creating meeting reports, as well as a new YouTube channel with video recordings of the meetings.
