Board of Education planning hybrid online and in-person meeting for June 22

With the Governor relaxing safer-at-home orders, the Dearborn Public School Board of Education will hold a hybrid online and in-person board meeting on June 22, 2020.

Some trustees and school officials will gather in the Board Room at the Administrative Service Center, 18700 Audette St., but others will participate remotely.

A limited number of public seats will also be available for the 7 p.m. meeting, but those in the audience will be required to wear face masks the entire time they are in the building. (Note, any plans are subject to change if Executive Orders change regarding public gatherings.)

Residents will also still be able to participate in the meeting online from the safety of home.  The meeting will be shown on the District’s Facebook and YouTube social media and on its cable television channel.  Those wishing to submit official comments to the board will be able to do so using a Google Form. Comments are accepted from noon until 7:10 p.m. the day of the meeting.

The Board of Education has been meeting virtually since the Governor issued her safer-at-home orders in March.  With those orders easing, but not entirely lifted, the District is trying a hybrid approach for the June 22 meeting.

Among other business at the meeting, the board will approve an initial budget plan for next  school year. However, the District still does not know how much funding to expect from the state, which provides most of the District’s revenue
