All School Board meetings and committee meetings are open to the public, and citizens are cordially invited to attend. The Winchester School Board generally meets twice each month, on the second and fourth Mondays, at 6:00 p.m. to discuss educational concerns and establish school policies. Board meetings are usually held at Virginia Avenue Charlotte DeHart Elementary School, 550 Virginia Avenue. Committee meetings are generally held at the Central Administrative Office, 12 N. Washington Street. Please check the meeting agenda to confirm meeting location.
The Agenda includes issues regarding curriculum, personnel, financial responsibilities, technology, facilities and operations, public comment, and other concerns. Also included is a closed session which is used for the discussion of matters exempt from public discussion as specified under the Code of Virginia.
Citizens who wish to offer their comments at a regular school board meeting are encouraged to do so. They are asked to call or write the Superintendent's office to request that an item be included on the meeting agenda. A sign-in sheet is also provided at each regular meeting for those wishing to address the school board.
