Agenda posted for Special Board Meeting July 30 2020

The Granville Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at 6:30 pm.   The purpose for the special meeting is to share the plan for the restart of schools for the 20-21 school year as well as address policies related to this restart. 

This spring, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed Amended Substitute House Bill 197 into law. This new law is a response to the health risks associated with the Coronavirus outbreak. Among other things, this new law allows public bodies such as boards of education to conduct their meetings using telephone conference, video conference, or other similar technologies. 

This law became effective on March 27, 2020. The Granville Exempted Village School Board of Education is committed to the health, safety, and welfare of our students and their parents, our staff, and our community in general. But even in these times, the Board needs to take certain actions to keep the District operational now and fully functional in the future. 

For these reasons, the Board will forego an in-person meeting on Thursday, July 30th  to avoid a gathering of our board, staff and community members and will instead conduct this meeting by video conference at 6:30 pm on Thursday, July 30, 2020.   

The public is invited to join the Video Conference via Facebook Live as another option for viewing this meeting. 

To join, please go to You will be able to watch the meeting and comment during Public Participation via Facebook Live chat feature. You may also  provide public comments to Jeff Brown at [email protected] prior to the Board Meeting provided we have received the comments by 6:00 pm Thursday evening. 

 You can view the agenda, minutes from the July 9, 2020 meeting and the Athletic Handbook which is also being approved at this meeting.
