Board Meetings

2019-2020 Monthly Voting Meetings and Work Sessions Schedule

Unless otherwise noted, ICSD Board of Education voting meetings are held at 6:00 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month in the Board Room at 400 Lake Street, Ithaca, New York. Board of Education work sessions are held for the purpose of informal discussions with no formal votes. 

All meetings and work sessions, where school district business will be discussed by the Board of Education, are open to the public; the public may be excluded from properly convened executive sessions. Typically, the Board of Education enters executive session at the beginning of each voting meeting, and returns to public session at approximately 7:00 p.m. 

If you would like to speak at a Board voting meeting or committee work session, simply show up and sign in on the sheet near the front entrance. If you would like to be placed on a Board agenda, please contact the district clerk, Tricia Beresford, at 607.274.2102 or
