Board of Education Adopts New Schedule for Regular and Committee Meetings

Board 22 JANUARY 6, 2020 – The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Board of Education has adopted a new schedule for meetings.

As of January 2020, the Board of Education will hold only one regular meeting each month. The regular meeting will be held on the fourth Tuesday.   

The meeting time will remain the same, with the closed session beginning at 5:30 p.m. and the regular session, which is open to the public, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The board has also adopted a new schedule for committee meetings.

In the past, committee meetings were held on different days and at different times. With the new schedule, all committee meetings will be held on one day and time.  Now a committee work session on the second Tuesday of the month will encompass all committees.

The newly formatted work sessions, which will be also be open to the public, will start at 5 p.m. and will be held in Room 219 of the WS/FCS Education Building.

Superintendent Angela Hairston had this to say about the new schedule for committee meetings: “The goal is to have everyone there and have improved communication – to allow our community to know there is a singular day they can get to all the committee meetings and participate and be a part of the process and not miss anything.”

The first work session will be held on Jan. 14, beginning at 5 p.m. The first regular meeting of the Board of Education will be held on Jan. 28 at 6:30 p.m.
