The School District of Lancaster Board of School Directors consists of nine members who are each elected to a four-year term of office. Board members serve without compensation and have the primary task of formulating and evaluating all policies necessary for the operation of the school district.
The Board of School Directors meetings are scheduled the first, second and third Tuesday of each month; however, occasionally there are exceptions. Each regular business meeting is advertised on this site and in the legal section of the local newspapers.
To provide for adequate social distancing, the school board meets in the McCaskey East Media Center. Masks are required, and capacity is limited to 25 persons. (Additional space for attendees is available in the lobby.) Residents may address the board in person when the agenda allows for public comment. If you do not wish to attend in person, you may register to make a virtual comment via Zoom. Please provide your full name and email address (link below) and you will receive meeting information in the email provided. Commenters will remain in a virtual “waiting room” until it is their turn to speak.
