School Board Meetings
Membership on the School Board requires attendance at a variety of meetings held every month as well as participation on district committees and community group assignments. Unless otherwise allowable under state statute, all School Board Meetings must be open to the public so that the public has the opportunity to see and hear all discussion, testimony and vote. Regular meetings are generally held at 7 p.m. on the third Monday of each month. Meetings are held in room 349 of the Edina Community Center (5701 Normandale Rd, Edina).
Virtual School Board Meetings
Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes section 13D.021, and the current state of emergency declared by the Governor of Minnesota due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board Chair and Chief Legal Counsel for the District have determined that it is not prudent to conduct an in-person meeting of the School Board or a meeting under section 13D.02, nor is it feasible to allow any member of the public to be present at the regular meeting location or any remote sites of any Board Members in order to attend the meeting. All members of the School Board will participate by electronic means, other than the Board Chair. View the Virtual Meeting Protocols for Board Members.
All members of the public who wish to attend may do so by accessing this livestream link: YouTube livestream.
Members of the public may provide comments regarding items on the Board Meeting agenda by sending an email to SchoolBoard@edinaschools.org, Subject line: Board Meeting Comment, by noon on the day of the Board Meeting. The Board will designate an individual to read a representative sample of the comments at the Board meeting. Comments must include the sender’s name and contact information. Anonymous comments will not be read. The public will not be given an opportunity to be heard in person at the Board meetings. This temporarily supersedes Section IV of Policy 206.
Regular meetings of the School Board will be live streamed on the district's YouTube channel. Click the link or click on the YouTube icon on the footer of every district webpage to watch.
Work sessions and special meetings will be streamed as well. These meetings are not recorded.
