Board meeting Thursday will be held online

 

Nacogdoches ISD will hold a Board of Trustees meeting at 5 p.m., Thursday, March 26, to consider a limited agenda. Due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 coronavirus, the meeting will be conducted through Zoom, a video conferencing app.

Those wishing to observe the meeting can go to https://zoom.us/j/6335130687 (Meeting ID is 633 513 0687). Users can watch through the web browser on their desktop or mobile device or download the free Zoom app to their desktop or mobile device.

Anyone wishing to address the board during the public comment portion of the meeting should email their request to administration@nacisd.org by 4 p.m. on Thursday. When the meeting reaches the public comment agenda item, those that requested to address the board will be asked to speak. The 3-minute time limit for speakers during regular board meetings will be used during Thursday’s online meeting.

“This is something entirely new for us,” said G.W. Neal, president of the NISD Board of Trustees. “I’ve used the phrase ‘uncharted waters’ several times the last few days to describe what’s taking place, and that certainly applies here.

“We hope the community will be patient as we conduct our meeting in an online format. I know everyone wants to be as a safe and responsible as possible while maintaining transparency while the board conducts the district’s business.”

There are three action items on the agenda for Thursday: Budget amendments; consideration of a resolution concerning COVID-19 virus; and consideration of hire of superintendent of schools.

The board meeting via online conference will begin at 5 p.m., allowing the meeting to be gaveled into session. Once that occurs, the first open session of the meeting will end so board members can enter a closed session. At 6 p.m., the second open session of the online conference will get underway. Information for connecting electronically to these two sessions is included with this press release as well as a copy of the meeting agenda.
