School Board Meeting - September Workshop Session
The Elizabethtown Area School District Board of School Directors will convene on Tuesday, September 14, at 6 p.m. in the high school auditorium for its regularly scheduled monthly workshop session. Members of the public are welcome to attend in person or virtually (see the ZOOM link and log-in information below). Please note, by order of the PA Department of Health, ALL in-person attendees to the workshop session, including school board members, school personnel, and community stakeholders, are required to wear a solid, protective face covering that covers their nose and mouth inside our schools at all times. If you are unable to wear a face covering for the duration of the meeting, a reasonable accommodation has been established through our live stream option on the District's YouTube channel (see details below) that permits both viewing and participation. The District will NOT accept face covering exemptions at the door.
The school board invites interested stakeholders to offer public comments on agenda and non-agenda items. The Board welcomes this opportunity to hear from community members about issues that are important to them as it fosters better decision-making and improved learning experiences for all students. The Board uses the public comment period as an opportunity to listen to citizen concerns but not to debate issues or enter into a question-and-answer session with the speaker. As such, the Board values civil, respectful statements and clear, concise communications that help to inform its deliberations.
If you plan to address the school directors in person, pre-registration is NOT required. However, stakeholders that wish to deliver their remarks virtually must pre-register by Tuesday, September 14, 2021, at noon. The District uses the ZOOM platform to facilitate virtual comments. Please contact Troy Portser, Director of School and Community Information, at (717) 367-1521, ext. 10024 to pre-register.
Public comments must adhere to the following procedures:
- You can only offer public comment one time per school board meeting.
- You must identify yourself by name and the address with which you reside before beginning your remarks.
- Your comments are limited to five minutes.
If you are not interested in delivering your remarks publicly or are unable to attend the meeting in person or virtually, the Board wants to remind stakeholders that they may submit in writing their comments on agenda and non-agenda items to the school board via the school board secretary (Mrs. Becky Maxwell) at 600 E. High Street, Elizabethtown, PA 17022. Stakeholders can submit comments on any topic at any time. Please note, the board secretary provides a copy of all comments submitted in writing by stakeholders to each board member. They are not read out loud at the public meeting.
The District publishes a recording of each workshop session on the District's YouTube Channel by the Friday immediately following the meeting. You can access the EASD YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1pEwdDmQAkf5Mvwo8gox1g.
