The Board of School Trustees meets at 7 p.m. the second Tuesday (unless otherwise posted) of each month at Westfield Middle School - Large Group Instruction Room, 345 W Hoover St., Westfield. Special meetings are occasionally held to deal with additional business that arises.
The public may comment during the audience portion of the agenda at the end of the board meeting. A Comment Card must be filled out (available upon entry to the meeting) and turned in to the check-in table at least five minutes before the meeting's scheduled start time. Comments are limited to 3 minutes. Board members may or may not respond to comments. The Board may ask the administration to look into a comment and follow up by phone or email with a speaker. The purpose for public comment is to give the Board members as much information as possible, not to engage in debate. Public comment is restricted to the audience portion of the agenda. The President of the Board may allow comments at other times.
Under the Open Door Law, some meetings are closed to the public. Meetings closed to the public are called executive sessions. Executive sessions are also closed to the media.
