The Chesterfield County School Board will hold a business meeting at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 9 in the Chesterfield County Public Meeting Room, 10001 Iron Bridge Rd., Chesterfield, VA 23832.
As previously noticed, public hearings on the Superintendent’s Proposed FY2022 Operating Budget and FY2022-28 Capital Improvement Plan will be held at the start of the business meeting. Persons wishing to speak at scheduled public hearings are asked to notify the School Board Clerk’s Office by 2:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting. Additionally, those persons who have not notified the Clerk’s Office may sign up to speak at the public hearings immediately prior to the beginning of the meeting at which the public hearing is scheduled.
Due to the COVID-19 occupancy limits of the Public Meeting Room and in keeping with safety protocols established by county officials, seating for both meetings will be extremely limited; however, citizens wishing to attend the meetings in person may do so on a first-come, first-served basis as follows:
Any citizen wishing to attend the meetings in person will need to check in with the Sheriff’s Deputies upon arrival. Citizens will be given a number and — as seating is available — be seated in the order in which they checked in. All citizens will be required to wear a face covering and pass a simple health screening before entering the building. Reservations will not be accepted, and citizens are not guaranteed admission. Deputies will begin issuing numbered tickets at 3:30 p.m.
Public comment will be accepted during the business meeting. Measures are being put in place to accommodate public input while practicing social distancing, as recommended by health officials. Citizens requesting to speak before the Board will be given the opportunity to comment in person at the appropriate time.
Citizens are encouraged to submit their comments for the public hearings and the regular comment periods via the online form found at https://tinyurl.com/14cqabmz. Comments submitted via the online form will be distributed to the Board prior to the start of the meeting and included as an addendum to the meeting minutes. Citizens wishing to address the Board in person during the regularly-scheduled comment periods must contact the Clerk’s office no later than 2 p.m. on Feb. 9. The online comment form will also close at this time. Each citizen may submit only one comment per comment period for this meeting.
Both meetings will be broadcast via live stream at http://chesterfieldschoolsva.swagit.com/live/ and via television on Comcast Channel 98 and Verizon Channel 28.
