Meeting Schedule and Information

  • The Board meets regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, unless otherwise noted. To view our upcoming meetings or an annual schedule of meetings, please view the Board of Education Meeting Schedule.
    In an effort to ensure transparency and open communication, all Board of Education Meetings will be available via the RCSD’s Facebook, YouTube, and the District’s website at www.rcsdk12.org/meetings.
    On November 10, 2020 the Board of Education voted to address an amendment of their Bylaws (Policy 2300) that altered the rules for the speakers’ portion of Board, Committee, and Special meeting agendas. 

    This provision allows for persons wishing to speak to the Board to do so in person or via the Zoom Video Conference webinar format during the Speakers portion of the agenda. In addition, this amendment will limit the number of speakers to thirty (30), on a first come, first served basis, in the order that is required by the current policy [i.e. Students, Parents, Community, and Staff).

    Anyone wishing to sign-up to speak in-person or via Zoom must send an email to Boardofeducation@rcsdk12.org by noon on the day of the meeting and state that they would like to speak. The following information must be included: Name, Telephone Number, Affiliation and the Topic on which they wish to speak.  Prior to the meeting, an email will be sent to those persons with a Zoom link to participate.

    Written comments are still accepted and can be submitted by emailing Boardofeducation@rcsdk12.org. Comments will be forwarded to Board Members, posted to Boarddocs, and accepted into the public record, however these will not be read into the Public Record.

    For more information or assistance, you may call the Board of Education at 585-262-8525 or by email at boardofeducation@rcsdk12.org.
