Agenda for August 13th Meeting?

Usually the agenda for the next school board meeting is posted by the end of the day on the Thursday before the Tuesday meeting. For the August 13th meeting, then, the agenda would have been posted on the school's website by 5:00PM on Thursday, August 8, 2019.

When that didn't happen, I watched for it today, Friday, August 9. And it didn't happen today, either.

This means, unless somebody works tonight or over the week-end (and let's hope they do not), the agenda will not be published until the day before the meeting, which will be Monday, August 12.

The South Carolina Freedom of Information Act requires that the agenda be posted 24 hours before the meeting.

Since the meeting will likely open at 5:30PM on Tuesday, August 13, you can expect the agenda to be published and posted no later than 5:30PM on Monday, August 12.

The first order of business is a motion to go into Executive Session, which often lasts at least one hour. The Executive Session is a closed meeting, not open to the public. After the Executive Session, the board members return to the main room and re-convene in open session.

The agenda for a meeting usually states the time for the re-convening of the open session.
