All School Board meetings are open to the public, unless closed in accordance with Minnesota statute. Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are held at the Educational Service Center (ESC), 11200 93rd Avenue North, Maple Grove.

Attending/viewing meetings

Regular meetings: The Osseo School Board encourages staff and members of the public to attend regular meetings in person; watch meetings live on Channel 21; and/or watch meetings as live webstreams or on-demand archives on the school district’s website. DVD copies of meeting videos may be requested by calling 763-391-7003; reimbursement charges apply.

Work sessions: Staff and members of the public are welcome to attend work sessions. Work sessions are audiorecorded and recordings are posted online, usually by the end of the following business day.

Listening sessions are being piloted during the 2019-2020 school year. Offered prior to designated work sessions, listening sessions will provide a relatively informal venue for you to share your thoughts with school board members. Board members may ask clarifying questions but will typically not engage in direct discussion; the emphasis will instead be on listening for understanding. At each listening session, speaker time limits will be established by the board chair or his/her designee.

This meeting schedule is subject to change by School Board action. To verify dates, times, and locations, call the Superintendent's Office, 763-391-7003. "Audience Opportunity to Address the School Board" is part of each regular Board meeting, and provides the opportunity for staff and public input to the School Board. School Board work sessions and other special meetings are scheduled and held as needed throughout the year.

*Negotiation strategies sessions are closed to the public.

**Portions of the meeting may be closed pursuant to Minn. Stat. Sec. 13D.05
