The Board Meeting

The Cuyahoga Falls Board of Education usually meets at 6:00 pm on the first and third Wednesday of each month in the library of the Cuyahoga Falls High School. The meeting schedule appears in the column on the right. Handicapped accessibility is provided by parking on the circular drive in front of the 4th Street entrance to the high school and entering the building through those doors.

Ohio Sunshine Law requires school board meetings be open to the public with the exception of matters required to be kept confidential.  These matters are discussed in Executive Sessions. By law, reasons for Executive Session include: personnel matters such as employment, dismissal, promotion, demotion or compensation; the purchase or sale of property; negotiations; and conferences with legal counsel regarding pending court action. Any action taken by the Board that result from these sessions must take place at a public meeting. 

The Board of Education welcomes input from the residents of the Cuyahoga Falls City School District. If an individual wishes to address the Board they must complete a registration form and follow the procedures outlined in the link Request to Address the Board: Topic on the meeting agenda or Request to Address the Board: Topic NOT on the meeting agenda shown in the right hand column of this page.
