    Board Meetings

    We hold our meetings on the third Tuesday of every month unless otherwise noted.

    Held in the board room of the central office, regular meetings are open to the public. Indiana law allows board members to meet in closed executive sessions to discuss personnel, legal, and negotiation matters; however, all board action and voting must be conducted in public session.
