Board Meeting Minutes


BOARD MEETINGS:  The Coventry Local School District's Board of Education meetings are normally held on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM.  Special Meetings may be called by the board as needed.  All meeting dates and times are announced in advanced and in accordance with Ohio Sunshine Laws and the Open Meetings Act. 

BOARDDOCS:  Starting with the 2022-2023 school year, the Coventry Board of Education will be utilizing BoardDocs to share meeting documents and information. BoardDocs is a web-based application that provides access to meeting information from any devices, as long as the device has access to the Internet.  To view Coventry's board meeting agendas, minutes, and policies please click here: Coventry BoardDocs.  (Navigation Help = *The link to the meeting documents can be found in the upper right hand corner of the screen, in the gray bar.)

BOARD MEETING MINUTES:  According to the Ohio Sunshine Laws, public bodies must take accurate minutes of their proceedings. The minutes are not verbatim, but should include enough facts and information so the public understands the actions of the meeting. Detailed minutes of executive sessions are not kept because this discussion is not open to the public. However, the board minutes must indicate the general subject matter or reason for convening to session.  Please know, the meeting minutes must be reviewed and voted on by the Board of Education to be considered official minutes.  Prior to the approval of the minutes, any record of the minutes is considered to be in draft status.  

MEETING DOCUMENTS & EXHIBITS:  Meeting agendas, minutes, and exhibits are available for review by visiting Coventry's BoardDocs site at https://go.boarddocs.com/oh/coventrylocal/Board.nsf/Public.  Once there, click on the "Meetings" tab, located in the top right-hand corner of the site.  Meeting exhibits can be found within the agenda sections, which are noted by a piece of paper symbol.  

BOARD ACTION:  All board action takes place in public session. The board does have the ability to enter into executive session to discuss specific matters.  These matters include: personnel, land purchases, pending court action, negotiations, school security and safety, and confidential records.  Any action resulting from an executive session discussion must be made during an open session.
