Board Schedule, Agenda and Minutes

Board Schedule, Agenda and Minutes

Warwick Valley Central School District Board of Education Meetings are open to the public, and residents are encouraged to attend.

The Board of Education typically holds meetings twice a month on the first and third Thursday of the month beginning at 7 p.m.  in the Dorothy Wilson Education Center Board/Community Room. Please check this webpage often, as meeting dates/times are subject to change.

At this time, the Warwick Valley Central School District Board of Education meetings are held remotely, in accordance with Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order No. 202.1 of March 12, 2020, which has been extended several times, which temporarily suspended those sections of the Open Meetings Law requiring in-person access to public meetings. Board of Education meetings will be livestreamed using the District’s YouTube channel. The link to the stream can be found on our website on the Board of Education webpage under the 2020-2021 Board Meeting schedule the day of the meeting.

The agenda for the next regular or special Board of Education meeting is available via BoardDocs on the Board of Education webpage. Residents are invited to comment on agenda items or other items by emailing their comments, along with their name, address, and telephone number, to the District Clerk at slaroe@wvcsd.org by no later than 4 p.m. on the day before the Board meeting. Please anticipate a phone call acknowledging receipt and verifying the authenticity of your comments. Please keep your comments brief, no more than approximately 300 words, to enable the Board of Education to attend to the business of the School District.

The Board of Education President or his/her designee will read the comments received at the Board meeting. Obscene language, libelous statements, threats of violence, or statements advocating discrimination will not be tolerated. In the event there are multiple comments submitted by individuals or members of an organization on the same subject, the Board of Education President or his/her designee may read one or two of the submitted comments that capture the spirit of the multiple comments. 

Work sessions are meetings of the Board of Education committee members to work on and discuss issues related to their committees. Agendas for work sessions are not prepared/published, and minutes are not taken/published.
