Board Meetings

The BPS101 Board of Education meetings are held at the Rosalie Jones Administration Center located at 335 W. Wilson Street.  Meetings will be held at this location unless otherwise posted. Regular meetings begin at 7:00pm.

A school board meeting is the only means by which a school board can carry out its legal duties or exercise its legal powers. As such, the primary purpose of a school board meeting is to transact business. Secondarily, school board meetings provide opportunities for creative and constructive decision-making by members of the board while attempting to reach a consensus on strategic issues. In addition, school board meetings offer the public and staff an opportunity to address the Board of Education.
