The Board of Education meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month, except in months where there is only one board meeting. The meetings begin at 4:30 p.m., and are held in the District Conference Room located in the high school (101 4th AVE SW New London, MN). There is always a possibility of conflict, necessitating a change of meeting dates or times. Although rare, when it is necessary, the public will be informed via posting whenever possible. There are also instances when a special meeting must be called to consider certain specified actions. In both instances, the public will be informed of such meetings whenever possible. All meetings of the full board (regular, special, and emergency) are open to the public. Any portion of the meeting may be closed as per State Statute if the board needs to discuss what is deemed data privacy issues and/or issues that meet certain statute authority. The Board Chair would announce the closed meeting citing the State statute authorizing the closure.
The Board of Education has complete and final control over local school matters subject only to the limitations imposed by state law, regulations of the Minnesota Department of Children, Families and Learning and, of course, the will of the local residents as expressed in district elections.
