Overview of Board Meetings

All Oshkosh Area School District Board of Education meetings are shown live on OCAT CitiCable 10 (Oshkosh Time Warner Cable).  The meetings are also simulcast live on WOCT 101.9 FM. 
The meeting starts with roll call and the Pledge of Allegiance.

There are two public forums with speakers addressing non-agenda related topics first and then those addressing agenda-related items. Presenters are asked to limit comments to five minutes.

The superintendent of schools does a brief report on current issues affecting education and good news happenings in our schools. Board members do updates on committee work if they had a recent meeting.

Resolutions are put on a consent resolution so that they can all be voted on at one time. Individual resolutions can be pulled from it by board members and are voted on separately. At every meeting, the minutes from the previous board meeting and executive session, if any, are included as well as bills payable and personnel. The rest of the resolutions vary.

The board adjourns to the workshop portion with a request for future agenda items and other business.

The workshop session allows administration to give reports on current issues, updates on initiatives, budget work, and new proposals to the board. Normally, no more than two topics are presented at a meeting.

Adjournment to executive session allows discussion of personnel matters, bargaining strategies, and conferring with legal counsel, etc., in closed session as provided for by statute.
