School Board meetings are generally held twice a month on Monday evenings.
Regular sessions typically begin at 6 p.m.
Agendas for school board meetings are posted on Thursday afternoon before each meeting.
Unless noted otherwise on a specific agenda, school board meetings are held at the Administration Building, located on the campus of Lake Oswego High School (map).
The School Board may hold a work session immediately prior to or after its regular sessions, or instead of a regular session. These meetings give Board members an opportunity to discuss issues in greater depth and ask questions of administrators. No action is taken during work sessions, which are open to the public.
The School Board may convene an executive session in addition to its work and regular sessions. Executive sessions are closed to the public in accordance with ORS 192.610-192.690.
Topics that may be discussed in executive session include personnel matters, strategies for collective bargaining, purchase of real estate, discussions with legal counsel, record reviews legally exempt from public inspection, students' confidential records, and expulsion of students. News reporters may attend executive sessions but cannot report on the content of those sessions.
