Regular School Board Meetings

This information was updated on April 2, 2020.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the School Board will be taking the following steps to protect the community, staff, and Board members at this time:

In general, upcoming Board Meetings will not be open to public comment unless legally required.  Alternative means will be available to view Board meetings and provide input to the Board.  In-person public attendance will be strongly discouraged in order to comply with current health guidelines on social gathering limits.  Most or all staff presentations at Board meetings will be presented by video, and the meetings will continue to be available for viewing on the APS website and broadcast on Comcast Cable Channel 70 and Verizon FIOS Channel 41.  For some specific meetings, such as public hearings on the budget, an opportunity for public comment is required by state code. For those meetings, the Board will allow public comment, but will be managing the scheduling of speakers by, for example, assigning time slots to speakers to encourage meeting attendance below the recommended of 10 or fewer attendees.

We encourage you to share your thoughts and comments with the School Board by email at  We ask that you minimize messages to individual board members, as they will be focused on communications about maintaining safe operations during the pandemic. The Board Office staff is teleworking and will be monitoring the School Board email account during normal business hours. Board members will receive regular reports of emails received and will have ready access to view all messages received.

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

See upcoming School Board Work Sessions and other meetings.  Work Sessions will start at 7 PM and take place at the Syphax Education Center, unless otherwise noted.
