Board Agendas

  • 07/15/2019 - 5:30PM - Special Called Board Meeting

    The goal and purpose of a Board Meeting is to effectively and efficiently complete the business before the BOE as outlined by the agenda, and for the BOE to give final consideration to, and vote on matters recommended by the superintendent.  On occasion, the BOE will both consider and vote on matters that are time sensitive during a board meeting.

    Board meetings are generally held on the third Thursday of each month.  (On occasion a board meeting will be rescheduled to accommodate events such as holidays and professional training.) 

    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; therefore, the BOE provides an opportunity at meetings of the BOE to receive HCS related questions or suggestions submitted by constituents by using the Constituent Services cards provided outside the board room or via the online Constituent Services Form

    Please return completed cards to the basket outside the board room when the meeting is adjourned.  Only cards that are filled-out completely will receive responses. The name and residential street address of the Citizen of Huntsville, AL (or annexed area), parent and guardian of a child enrolled in Huntsville City Schools, or Huntsville City Schools employee, making inquiry must be provided. We will be in contact within three business days. (Frequently asked questions may be posted on the HCS webpage and/or shared at a subsequent meeting of the BOE.)
