Committee Meetings

Public Comment

The Board of Education welcomes public comment during the Public Comment portion of the agenda.  Those who wish to address the board should state their name and limit their statement to five minutes.  Comments are not restricted to items on the agenda; however, comments regarding specific student discipline cases or personnel issues are not allowed during Open Session.  Generally, these types of comments should come to the board only after they have been referred to the teacher, principal, or administrator who is closest to the situation.  If all other avenues for resolving these items have been exhausted and the issue has not been resolved, you may request to address the board, usually during closed session.

District Live Stream Link

To make it easier to find live streams and recordings of Board of Education Meetings, Building & Grounds Committee Meetings, and more, Mercer County School District now has its own YouTube
