The Garrett County Board of Education will hold its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. The meeting will be held at Southern Garrett High School in the Cafeteria.

The Board of Education will meet in executive session from 4:05 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The Board of Education will hold a work session from 5:30 p.m. – 7:50 p.m.

During the work session, Business Economic and Community Outreach Network (BEACON) will present the findings of an economic impact study of school system operations. Garrett County Public Schools, in partnership with Allegany, Washington, Frederick, and Carroll Counties, recently utilized the services of BEACON to conduct this study. The study examined four factors: the economic and employment impact of the school system; the economic value of degrees awarded, the impact of the school system on economic development, and the school system’s role in the reduction of public costs, such as crime, healthcare, and welfare.

The business meeting will be held from 8:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.

Time is set aside during the work session and the business meeting for Hearing of Constituents at 7:40 p.m. and 8:10 p.m. respectively.

The agendas for the Work Session and Business Session can be accessed on the Garrett County Public Schools website (go to the Board of Education page and select the links to Agendas). They can also be accessed at BoardDocs - Agendas are not considered final until the Board takes action to accept them at the start of each meeting.

The public is invited to attend the work session and the business meeting. Part or all of the meeting may be closed pursuant to the General Provision §3-305 of the State Government Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
