Affidavit of Publication-Notice of Public Meeting.pdf
Provide Background Details and Rationale: A district may set an opening date that is more than ten calendar days prior to the first Monday in September only if the local school board first gives public notice of a public meeting to discuss the proposal of opening school on a date more than ten days prior to the first Monday in September, and the local school board holds said meeting and, at the same public meeting, a majority of the board votes to allow an earlier opening date. If all of the previous conditions are met, the district may set its opening date more than ten calendar days prior to the first Monday in September. The condition provided in RSMo. 171.031(3) must be satisfied by the local school board each year that the board proposes an opening date more than ten days before the first Monday in September. Please note that comments must address only the proposed 2019-20 school start date, and not other matters related to the school calendar.
