Special Virtual BOE Meeting, Sept. 9

After moving to executive session at the start of the Sept. 7, the BH-BL Board of Education reconvened and decided to adjourn the meeting and reschedule it as a Special Meeting of the Board on Thursday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be virtual and live streamed. [WATCH THE LIVE STREAM]

Board President David Versocki explained that the Board made the decision to move the meeting to an online format after several audience members would not put on masks. The district’s legal counsel was consulted and advised that the district and board are obligated to follow the NYS Department of Health mandate that states all students, staff and visitors to school buildings must wear a mask.

“We came here this evening to conduct school business and hear from our neighbors—our community members— who signed up for privilege of the floor,” adds Versocki. “We wanted to listen to what they have to say. But we are legally obligated to follow the NYS DOH mask mandate as are visitors to our school buildings.”
