Board of Education
Due to the current stay at home order by St. Louis County due to the COVID-19 virus, the format for regular meetings of the board of education has been revised. In the interest of health and safety for all and until further notice, all meetings will be held via an online format. Meetings begin at 7 p.m., unless otherwise specified. To watch the meeting click here. Additionally, the meetings will be recorded and posted on the Parkway website for public review within 24 hours of the meeting.
Minutes and Agendas
Agendas are available online Monday prior to the meeting date and at the meeting. Regular board minutes may be viewed online.
Guidelines for Citizen Statements
Citizen statements will still be encouraged during meetings held under the temporary online meeting format. In order to submit a comment to the board of education, please complete this form, including your written statement, no later than one hour before the scheduled board meeting time. Since most meetings begin at 7 p.m., statements must be submitted by 6 p.m.
All statements received by the designated time will be read aloud by the board president so the statements will be recorded for public review.
Due to time constraints and the need to complete the primary responsibilities of the meeting agenda, the board cannot respond to citizen statements during the meeting. Citizens who participate in public comment receive a response in writing from the board president after the meeting.
Parkway board members are always available to have an open dialogue with citizens at other times and can be reached by email or phone using the contact information provided on the Parkway website.
- The public comment session is not the appropriate forum for addressing individually identifiable student and/or personnel matters. Therefore, due to privacy laws protecting students and employees, comments about these matters should not include personally identifiable information about particular students or employees.
- Members of the public, staff and students are encouraged to utilize established policies and procedures for offering suggestions or addressing concerns and complaints prior to bringing the issue before the board.
- Please be mindful that the meetings of the board, including your statements submitted online, will be broadcast, and you are responsible for any public comments you make.
- If you prefer that your statement not be read aloud, you can also provide a written statement via an email to board members.
- Statements will be expected to maintain civility, and the board president reserves the right to refuse to read all or portions of the submitted statement if it uses foul or inappropriate language.
Correspondence Sent to Board Members
Correspondence sent to individual board members will be shared with all board members. If a response is requested, the board president will normally reply on behalf of the board.
The board of education may meet in closed session to discuss those items as designated by law.
