On March 19, 2020, in response to the current public health situation both globally and in Ontario, the provincial government made regulatory changes to allow for school boards to be able to continue to meet during mandated school closures. The regulatory amendments permit school board meetings to be conducted exclusively via electronic/virtual platforms until 60 days after the expiration of a provincial order to close all publicly-funded schools (currently April 5, 2020).

As such, the March Regular Board meeting will proceed as scheduled, to be held on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. using the Microsoft Teams platform. The agenda will consist of required approvals and information items, with all other items being deferred to the April 28, 2020 Regular Board meeting. Members of the public who wish to attend the meeting are asked to email Victoria Johnson by noon on Monday, March 30, 2020 for access to the meeting link.
