Regular School Board Meetings

This information was updated on May 6, 2021.  As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board will continue to refine plans for conducting public business and appreciates the community’s patience as procedures are adjusted. 

Regular School Board meeting dates are listed to the right and start at 7 PM, unless otherwise noted.  All meetings take place in the Board Room of the Syphax Education Center, 2110 Washington Blvd, 2nd Floor, Arlington VA 22204.

Beginning on March 11, the regular School Board Meetings will be conducted in-person, with strictly limited attendance.  In order to meet safely, the Board will take all necessary steps to protect the community, staff, and Board members as they conduct public business.  This includes adjusting meeting procedures to comply with health and safety guidelines. (Work sessions and other meetings will continue to be held virtually.)

* For the in-person School Board meetings, Public Comment on Agenda and Non-Agenda items will continue to be heard at the beginning of the meeting and will be limited to 1 hour.  At each meeting, the Board will hear from a maximum of 30 speakers and each speaker will have up to 2 minutes to comment.  A maximum of 15 speakers will be allowed to comment in person and the remaining slots will be given to call-in speakers.  All speakers must sign up in advance and indicate whether they want to speak in person or to call in to the meeting.  A lottery process will continue to be used to select speakers if more requests than available slots are received.  Please go to the Sign Up to Speak at a School Board Meeting page for additional information.
