MNPS Public Notice Policy
A calendar of all Board of Education events is available on the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools website and is continuously updated with adequate notice of the date, time, location and agendas for meetings that involve two or more Board members.
This calendar is maintained by staff in the Board’s office. In addition, the Public Information Office is responsible for media releases.
The Metropolitan Nashville Board of Education meets the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month except December when the Board meets on the second Tuesday only. These meetings are posted to the website at the beginning of each fiscal year.
Special meetings may be called to conduct business between regularly scheduled Board meetings. The Public Information Office distributes a media release to all media entities, business contacts, community leaders, government agencies, and parents. The advisory is posted to the website providing adequate time for public viewing.
Work Sessions are meetings that do not require action and are not considered business meetings. These sessions are generally planned to receive information for study. These meetings are posted to the MNPS website and announced at Board meetings. The Public Information Office will include notice of these work sessions either through media advisories or through other district publications.
Committee meetings are announced at Board meetings and posted to the MNPS website several weeks in advance of the meeting.
