Last Updated on Jul 21, 2020 at 9:04am

The Garrett County Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. The meeting will be held virtually due to COVID-19 and Governor Hogan’s executive orders prohibiting public gatherings.
 
The Board will meet in Executive Session from 4:00 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. The Board of Education will reconvene for the public session portion of the meeting from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. The Board will take action in the Public Session on certificated recommendations, negotiation parameters, and the plans for reopening of 2020-2021 school year. The Board will also discuss the draft 5 year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). There is no public comment at this meeting. As a reminder, the public session is not open for in-person attendance except for certain Board members and GCPS staff. The meeting will instead be live-streamed for public viewing, and we invite all stakeholders to stay up-to-date via this format. The live-stream information will be available before the meeting begins and can be found on the Garrett County Public Schools website.

It can also be accessed at BoardDocs - https://www.boarddocs.com/mabe/garrett/Board.nsf/Public. The agenda is not considered final until the Board takes action to accept it at the start of each 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.
