  • 07/09/2019 - 8:00AM - Work Session

    The purpose of a Work Session is for the superintendent and administration to keep the BOE informed and to present information to the BOE for consideration and discussion.  Voting on superintendent recommendations will generally occur at a subsequent board meeting to allow time for thoughtful consideration of each topic.  On occasion, the BOE will both consider and vote on matters that are time sensitive during a work session.

    Although not required, the BOE, as elected officials, acknowledge the need to be of appropriate and reasonable assistance to the constituents of Huntsville City Schools.

    Constituents may choose to submit any HCS related question or suggestion by using the Constituent Services cards provided on the table outside of the board room or via the online version through the HCS webpage. The online version will also allow remote viewers opportunity to submit questions and suggestions.

    With 72 hour advanced notice, citizens may address the BOE, upon completion of the business of the Work Session. The BOE will adjourn (end the work session), take a short break, and upon return, provide time to listen to the concerns of constituents, who have signed up in advance, during Citizen Comments. Please visit HCS webpage for details.
