How to Run Safe Board Meetings

As school board meetings begin to return to regular time there are a myriad of issues districts must consider. While it’s essential to allow parents and members of the community the option of coming in person to speak on behalf of their children, they should be able to do so in a manner which doesn’t put safety at risk or disrupt the flow of meetings. In addition schools and districts need to have plans in place to get individuals out of the premises immediately if they’re behaving aggressively or are threatening others by their actions.

To conduct effectively and safely board meetings, it’s essential to begin with a clear agenda and stick to it. This will ensure that you cover all of the necessary topics while keeping the meeting time to an absolute minimum, and making it easier for participants to remain engaged.

A clear agenda will help you avoid drowning your attendees with lengthy reports and routine items. By clearly identifying what the final goal of each item is (inform or obtain information, or come to a decision) Your attendees can focus on discussion and questions, and not be distracted by trivial details.

Choose a program that is secure and can be used both on-site and remotely. You can also offer hybrid meetings for those who don’t have access to a private boardroom. It will make it easier to share documents, take minutes and record attendance.
