The BPS101 Board of Education resumed holding their meetings at the Rosalie Jones Administration Center located at 335 W. Wilson Street with the May 2021 meeting. Meetings will continue to be held at the Administration Center unless otherwise posted.
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. Comments from the public will be limited to 3 minutes per speaker. Email the Board’s recording secretary, Kathy Scaffidi, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Board of Education meetings will be held at the BPS101 central offices located at 335 W. Wilson Street and streamed to this page live. The recording of each meeting can be found next to the agenda for the meeting shown below.

Public Comments at Board Meetings
Citizens are encouraged to participate in school district affairs, and a special portion of the meeting agenda, “Public Comments” is set aside to listen to community members. This segment of the meeting is scheduled within the agenda and the President of the Board will ask for citizen comments at the proper time. When addressing the Board, a community member is requested to identify him/herself by name and address. If an individual represents a group, then the group should also be identified. The Board of Education normally provides three minutes for each speaker but will allow for a longer commentary with advance notice to the Superintendent. Such comments may then become a formal part of the meeting agenda. The Board asks that no identifying characteristics of a student or District staff person be included in comments. BPS101 holds their students and staff in the highest level of confidence.
Although the Board encourages public comment, it must also be understood that the Board may or may not provide feedback or take action immediately following the public comment. Inquiries are directed to the Superintendent who will investigate the matter and report as quickly as possible to the citizen and the Board of Education. If formal action is called for, the matter will usually be placed on the agenda for a future regular meeting of the Board of Education.
