School Board Information
The Lake County School Board Regular Meetings are held the second and fourth Monday of each month, unless a holiday occurs on that date, or as otherwise noted. The Regular Meetings are held at 6:00 p.m. in the Commission Chambers of the Lake County Administration Building, 315 W. Main St., Tavares.
In accordance with Florida’s Sunshine Law, all meetings are open to the public, except Executive Sessions.
In addition to Regular Meetings, the School Board holds Workshop sessions to discuss issues and these sessions are open to the public and are usually held in the Board Room of the Lake County School District, 201 W. Burleigh Blvd., Tavares, unless otherwise noted. No formal action is taken at these sessions. Special Meetings are held at the discretion of the Superintendent and School Board and are open to the public and formal action is taken.
The School Board may also schedule Public Hearings as needed and these are open to the public and allow for public participation on a particular issue before the School Board takes formal action.
All Regular Meeting, Workshop, Special Meeting and Public Hearing notices are published in the Daily Commercial.
Anyone wishing to address the School Board on a particular issue must submit a public input card to the Board Clerk before the start of the meeting. These cards are available at the Commission Chambers and the Lake County Schools’ Board Room entrance. There is a three minute time limit for speaking.
All Regular meetings are videotaped and broadcast on Lake Sumter TV/LSTV. The channels are Comcast 13, Brighthouse 498, and Spectrum 83. Watch on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm, Sundays at 9pm.
