Meeting Format

Schedule

By board policy, Glenbrook High School District 225 Board meetings are scheduled on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. Occasionally, a holiday or other circumstance alters this schedule. Regular meetings of the Board of Education are scheduled a year in advance as part of the reorganization procedure each spring. Meetings begin at 7:00 pm unless otherwise specifically advertised. Primarily, board meetings will be held in the Board Room of the District Office, located at 3801 West Lake Avenue in Glenview.

Reference Materials

Board meeting agendas and materials can be accessed from the school district's SchoolBoard.net meeting portal. During each meeting members of the public are invited to address the Board in accordance with Board Policy 2030.  As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Board of Education expanded access to its meetings through the implementing of live streaming via the Zoom Webinar platform.  Information regarding how to access the live streaming event is included with each Board agenda.

Recognition of Community Visitors

To afford the public an opportunity to address the Board, a period called "Recognition of Community Visitors" is set aside at or near the beginning of each meeting. There will be a sign-up sheet for members of the audience to address the board.  A podium is provided, and individuals are asked to limit their comments to two minutes during this period. Comments do not have to be limited to agenda items.  Please note that public comments during specific agenda items will not be permitted without the approval of the Board of Education.

Community members may also give written statements to the Board.  To have your statement included in the materials for Board members, your statement must reach the district office (3801 West Lake Avenue, Glenview, IL 60026) four working days prior to the Board meeting.  Statements may also be emailed to boardofeducation@glenbrook225.org  Otherwise, you may give Board members copies of your written materials at the Board meeting.
