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.
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.
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.
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.
- If you wish to address the board, sign up with the Board's Student Member prior to the meeting.
- If additional time slots are open when the public comment period comes up, the Board President will ask for comments from anyone not signed up that wishes to speak.
- 3 minutes per speaker
- Guidelines on the subject matter allowed are available on the School Board's Website. In general, comments should pertain to the operation of schools and not individual student education issues.
- For detailed or complex comments, speakers are asked to provide a written outline.
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 to addressing the board.
