Meetings

The Newton County Board of Education generally meets twice each month, once in a work session and once in a regularly scheduled meeting. The Board of Education adopts a meeting schedule each January and those dates are published by the Newton County School System Public Relations Department.

Board work sessions and meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. and are open to the public. The Board meets in executive session at 6:00 p.m. prior to each work session and monthly meeting. Executive sessions are not open to the public as they include discussions on potential litigation, personnel issues, and future real estate acquisitions. Other called Board meetings are scheduled as necessary to approve bids, hear appeals, and discuss budget issues and other matters that require immediate Board action. Board members also attend training workshops and district and state meetings throughout the school year.

The Newton County Board of Education was one of the first Boards in the state to be accredited by the Georgia School Boards Association's "Standards for Local Boards of Education." Citizens are encouraged to attend board meetings. All Board of Education meetings are open to the public and the opportunity for public participation is included on the agenda of all regular meetings.
