Members of the public may speak in person during the Audience to Visitors section of the meeting or submit written documents to the board by emailing comments to Kathy Sloniker at kslonike@syc427.org by 12:00 PM on the date of the Board Meeting.

ATTENDING A MEETING

The public is invited to attend Board of Education meetings in person. Under current guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), only 10 members of the public may be in the same room as the Board. If more than 10 members of the public arrive, they will be directed to watch the meeting in an overflow room. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Board of Education meetings are also streamed on SpartanTV.
