PDF DocumentBoard of Education 2017-2018 Meeting Schedule

All Jenison Public Schools Board of Education meetings are open to the public. Jenison Public Schools Board of Education meetings are in public, but not of the public. Public participation is available at the beginning of each meeting with 5 minutes allotted to each individual and a maximum of thirty minutes provided for public participation. 

Regular Board of Education Meetings are held at the beginning of each month starting at 7:00 p.m. During these meetings the Board of Education will take action regarding various items of the district.  The Board of Education will also meet a second time during some months in a workshop format. Board workshops are held to update Board of Education members on information pertinent to the school district. No official School Board action is taken at a Board workshop. These meetings start at 6:00 p.m. 

Bylaws & Policies

Effective bylaws and policies are at the core of successful school district governance. Maintaining bylaws and policies that reflect both local oversight and ever-changing state and federal laws is an enormous task. To ensure district policies are accurate and up-to-date, the Jenison Public Schools Board of Education contracts with NEOLA for these services.
