How to view the meeting:

The State issued an executive order on March 16 that amended provisions to the Open Meetings Act. This executive order allows school boards the ability to hold meetings virtually due to the Governor’s Stay at Home Order as a result of COVID-19.

This meeting will be held via Zoom, and only School Board members and meeting presenters will be permitted to directly enter the meeting. The public may view the meeting via a live stream on the District 58 YouTube page at www.youtube.com/DownersGrove58. After the meeting has concluded, this live stream will be saved on YouTube and posted to the District 58 website.  

How to make a public comment during the meeting:

The Board encourages public comment from the community. District 58 created a Google Form, which is linked in the “Public Comment” section of the meeting agenda. This form will be open on Monday, April 13 from 6 p.m. through the end of the public comment portion. The School Board will read public comments aloud during the meeting.
