School Board Meetings

The Eugene School Board usually meets in regular public sessions on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at 7 p.m. at the Education Center, 200 North Monroe, Eugene. This schedule sometimes varies, and additional meetings and work sessions are scheduled as necessary. The regular meeting start time was changed to 6 p.m. on a trial basis in winter–spring 2020.

On the Agenda: The board’s scheduled meetings for 2019–20 are listed below. Additional meetings may be scheduled as necessary. The full current schedule of meetings is always available online at tinyurl.com/4Jboardbook. Click on the meeting date for information about each meeting, including agendas and meeting materials, which are posted the Friday afternoon before each board meeting.

Live Broadcast: Regular board meetings and work sessions are streamed online and broadcast live on the radio at KRVM-AM 1280. Audio recordings also are posted online after each meeting.

Attend a Board Meeting: Members of the public are welcome to attend any regular or specially scheduled board meeting or work session. On occasion the board may hold an executive session to cover specific types of confidential information; executive sessions are not open to the public, in accordance with Oregon law. During the coronavirus pandemic, board meetings are being held virtually, to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and in adherence to Governor Kate Brown’s executive orders. Pursuant to ORS 192.670, the meetings are open to the public via live broadcast on KRVM 1280-AM and streaming online.

Speak at a Board Meeting: Time is set aside at each regular school board meeting for public comment; this is listed on the agenda as “Items Raised by the Audience.” If you wish to speak, fill out and turn in a speaker card before the meeting or in the first few minutes, before public testimony begins. (Work sessions of the board do not include time for public comment.) You may also submit written testimony to the school board at board@4j.lane.edu. During the coronavirus pandemic, board meetings are being held virtually. Public comment may be submitted by sending an email to board@4j.lane.edu, with the subject line clearly labeled “Public Comment.” The board will read, review and take into consideration all comments. Public comment received prior to the start of the board meeting will be published in board materials after the meeting. (Public comments normally are posted within two days, but this may take longer particularly when there is a large volume of emails received.)
