COVID-19 Safety Protocols

All attendees will be spaced six feet apart, aisles will be widened, and only 40 people will be permitted to attend. If more than 40 people show up, those arriving last will be asked to watch the meeting online rather than in-person for the safety of all others in attendance. Face masks are also required for everyone. Meetings will continue to be streamed live to the district’s Facebook page.

Have questions or comments for the Board of Education? 

Those who wish to provide public comment to the Board must complete an online form by 5 p.m. the day of the meeting. Those requesting to make public comment must be in attendance at the meeting. There will be no paper forms available inside. This form can be found at on the homepage. 

How dayton board of education school board meetings work


Dayton Public Schools maintains its board agenda and associated documentation on BoardDocs ( Agendas are available for public review no less than 48-hours prior to the scheduled meeting.

The board agenda primarily consists of reports from the superintendent and his/her staff, and items requiring board approval, e.g., contracts, staff changes/appointments, resolutions and purchase orders exceeding $50,000. In addition, time may be allotted to allow for student and staff recognitions and presentations, hearings by pre-selected groups and public input. The board president presides over the meeting, public hearings, policy discussions and/or presentations indicated on the agenda.


The superintendent routinely updates the Board on information pertaining to district operations. These reports generally focus on academic updates, evaluation of programs and department updates. Additionally, the superintendent, at his/her discretion may invite an outside entity to make a presentation before the Board.

Reports of the Treasurer

As the chief fiscal officer for the Board, the treasurer will make regular presentations to the Board related to the district's finances, budgets, revenue and expenditures. 

Executive sessions

Ohio Sunshine Law allows the board to move into executive session to discuss matters deemed private. These matters are established by Ohio Revised Code, and examples include, but are not limited to:  hiring/firing of an employee, purchase and/or sale of real estate, conference with an attorney, and labor negotiations. The public is allowed to attend a board meeting up to the time it enters executive session, and may re-join the meeting once executive session has ended. The Board, at its discretion, may invite other individuals to join executive session if their presence is deemed necessary. The Board will always open and close meetings in public session, and no formal action (i.e., vote) is taken by the Board while in executive session).

Citizen comments

The Board values input from the community and as such, the public is invited to attend board meetings and given time to address the Board during the public hearing portion of the business meeting. This is an opportunity for community members to share information, express viewpoints and concerns. It is not a forum for resolving disputes.

(Note: All Dayton Board of Education documents after June 1, 2015 will be available and archived on BoardDocs. Years 2008-May 2015 will continue to be available on this website.)
