Norfolk Board of Education study sessions moving to City Cuncil chambers

NORFOLK - The city of Norfolk and Norfolk Public Schools have reached a new agreement for use of the City Council Chambers for School Board meetings.  The agreement will allow the Board to hold both the study session and regular board meeting in the same location on the second Monday of the month.  At last night’s meeting, Superintendent Marlene Uhing said the new agreement will facilitate a change in the time and format of School Board meetings.  Uhing says Board meetings will now start at 5 p.m., and all of the business will be conducted in one, continuous meeting with a short dinner break. The Board has been meeting in the Central Office building at 4:30 on the second Monday of the month for a study session, and then at 7:30 that evening in the Council Chambers to conduct regular business. Uhing says the change will allow all of the board proceedings to be televised on Cable One.
