BROCKTON SCHOOL COMMITTEE

MAY 5, 2020, 6:00 P.M.

 

  

Dear Visitors:

 

Welcome to an open meeting of the School Committee.  This is the agenda that will be discussed this evening.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic and State of Emergency, on March 12, 2020, Governor Baker issued an Executive Order Temporarily Suspending Certain Provisions of the Open Meeting Law, G.L. c. 30A sec. 20. Pursuant to the Order, public bodies are temporarily relieved from the Open Meeting Law’s requirement that meetings be held in public places, open and physically accessible to the public, so long as measures are taken to ensure public access to the bodies' deliberations "through adequate, alternative means."

This meeting will be held and will be accessible to the public via Brockton Community Access, Brockton Public Schools website, www.bpsma.org, YouTube and Comcast channel 12 , The public can access this meeting via this link:  www.youtube.com/TheBrocktonChannels
