Electronically Conducted Board Meetings

  • 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, Governor Whitmer temporarily suspended rules and procedures relating to physical presence at meetings and hearings of public bodies and other governmental entities in Michigan (see Executive Order 2020-154).  Therefore, the Milan Area Schools Board of Education can conduct virtual Board Meetings using Zoom.

    Members of the public body can provide input or ask questions on any business that will come before the Milan Area Schools Board of Education at their meetings by emailing the Board at boardofeducation@milanareaschools.org.

    If you are an individual with a disability who is in need of an auxiliary aid or service to participate in the meeting, please contact Superintendent Bryan Girbach at 734-439-5050 for voice and TDD calls or send an email to girbachb@milanareaschools.org prior to the meeting.

    The August 12, 2020 Regular Board Meeting of the Milan Area Schools Board of Education will be held both in person and virtually (see official posting for more information). While the Regular Meeting will begin at 7:00 PM, the virtual meeting will be available at 6:45 PM. Please see the directions below to participate in the meeting.
