2017-18 Board of Education Meeting Dates

All monthly work sessions and regular sessions will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held in the Board Room at the Administrative Office Complex, 954 North Main Street, Conyers, Georgia. Schedule listed below or click here for PDF of 2017 Meeting Schedule.

* This schedule follows the Board of Education’s protocol for holding a work session on the second Thursday of each month, followed by a regular session on the third Thursday of each month — with the exception of June 2017, July 2017 and December 2017.  In June 2017, board members attend the Georgia Schools Boards Association's 2017 Summer Conference and Delegate Assembly during the second week of June, which requires the work session to be scheduled on June 15, 2017 and the regular session on June 22, 2017.  In July 2017, the Board will not have a scheduled work session. The Board will only have a regular meeting which will take place on July 27, 2017. The regular meeting will occur on the fourth Thursday of the month because system administrators will attend the Georgia Association of Educational Leaders' Annual Conference on the second Thursday of July, and system administrators will participate in administrative start-up and new teacher orientation on the third Thursday of July.  In December 2017, the District semester break is scheduled for December 18, 2017 through December 29, 2017, which makes it necessary to schedule the work session on December 7, 2017 and the regular session on December 14, 2017.

**If necessary, the May 18, 2017 regular session may be held in a school theater to be announced at a later date.
