This post is to clarify any confusion regarding the meetings of the Board of Education this month. On Sunday, February 7, 2016, the Board of Education is holding a meeting solely in Executive Session. There will be no public session and no business will be transacted. At the regular Board meeting, most of the time typically reserved for an Executive Session will instead be used for a Budget Information Session and an Audit Committee meeting, necessitating the scheduling of the Sunday Executive Session.
 
The Audit Committee is a committee of the whole Board. The public is welcome to attend the meeting at 6:00 p.m. at South Woods Middle School. The purpose of the meeting will be to accept the annual report of the Internal Auditor, R.S. Abrams & Co. LLC for the 2014-15 school year. The Internal Auditor’s role is to ensure that the school district has adequate internal controls to reduce risk relating to its financial processing and reporting operations. (The report of the Internal Auditor for the 2013-14 school year was accepted by the Board on December 15, 2014.)
 
After the Audit Committee meeting, it is anticipated that the Board will enter into a brief Executive Session prior to the Budget Information Session at 7:00 p.m.
