Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, school board meetings will be held using the Zoom video conferencing platform and will also be streamed live through YouTube.  Community members seeking to make comments should enter via Zoom.  Community members not seeking to make comments should view the board meeting using the YouTube link.  We are restricted to 100 visitors in the Zoom video conferencing platform. Please note, the District continues to exercise caution while using any online video conferencing software by embedding additional safety precautions using the webinar feature.

Public comment can be made using the Zoom platform, but will be limited to agenda items only. The agenda for the meeting will be posted on Carlynton School District Board Docs.

If you wish to follow the meeting via YouTube, THIS SITE will direct you to the YouTube channel. Please note, the YouTube link will be updated at 6:55 pm on the day of the meeting.
