Board of Education
Public Notification Updates
The Board meets regularly on Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m. Meetings may also be held on Tuesdays or Thursdays. For information on exact meeting dates, check your local cable channel, call the Board Office at (734) 419-2000 or click on the meeting dates link on the right-hand menu.
Board meetings are open to the public
Citizens are encouraged to attend. The Board has complete control over local school matters within the framework set by the State Legislature and State Board of Education. The Board acts as a legislative body, determining general policies for the care, management and control of the District's public schools. The Superintendent and her administrative staff are responsible for the execution of these policies. Executive (private) sessions may be held to discuss personnel matters, the purchase or sale of property for competitive bidding, disputes involving court action, negotiations with employees, and certain school security matters. However, all formal action by the Board of Education takes place at the public meetings.
Comments and views on subjects related to Wayne-Westland Schools are entertained under the Citizens' Questions and Comments portion of every public meeting. If you wish to address the Board, policy limits each person to three minutes of speaking time.
