Once again, we’ll remind you that this list includes only meetings that are posted online and does not include “planning committee” meetings, attended by all trustees. Our goal by publishing this information is to shine the light on the volume of work being done by trustees outside of the public realm and contrary to the spirit of the School Act section 70 (Open meetings).
