Information about Electronic Public Board Meetings

  • This page will be used to provide information about electronic public meetings if/when Board of Education meetings are scheduled to be held electronically.

    To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, protect the public health, and provide essential protections to vulnerable Michiganders, it is crucial that all Michiganders take steps to limit in-person contact. These critical mitigation measures include social distancing and limiting the number of people interacting at public gatherings.  To that end, Public Act 228 of 2020 suspended rules and procedures relating to physical presence at meetings and hearings of public bodies and other governmental entities in Michigan.  Therefore, the Milan Area Schools Board of Education can conduct virtual Board Meetings using Zoom through December 31, 2020 (or longer, if required by Pandemic Order).  An MDHHS Pandemic Order currently prohibits in-person School Board meetings through January 31, 2021.

    The Board of Education of Milan Area Schools will hold a workshop meeting on January 27, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will be held electronically using the information below: 

    Electronically Held Meetings: The Board of Education will broadcast its meeting via Zoom to ensure real-time, two-way communication between the Board of Education and members of the public so that all Board members and members of the public may hear each other and so that members of the public may provide public comment. Members of the public wishing to attend the meeting electronically may do so via Zoom as follows:
