The Polk County School Board will resume having work sessions and board meetings at the district office in Bartow.
Over the past two years, meetings and work sessions were held at a different location to allow for social distancing during the pandemic. In addition, the school board auditorium needed to undergo renovations for ADA compliance, as well as install technology to improve livestreaming of meetings. Those renovations and installation are now complete.
Work sessions and board meetings will once again take place at the school board auditorium, 1915 South Floral Ave. in Bartow.
Here is the schedule for October:
The school board will have a work session at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11, followed by a special work session at 10:30 a.m.
The school board will also have a work session at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 25, followed by a board meeting at 5 p.m.
Meetings will be broadcast live via the PCPS YouTube channel: (youtube.com/polkcountypublicschools). They will also be broadcast live on the following channels: Comcast channel 7, Frontier channel 45, Spectrum channel 642.
