A Note about Board Meetings
Pennsylvania’s Sunshine Act requires meetings of the RTM Board of School Directors to be accessible to everyone who wishes to attend so that all business is conducted in public. COVID-related gathering restrictions for indoor facilities that limit the ability for public attendance creates challenges with regard to the Sunshine Act.
A Board of Education meeting is a meeting in public rather than a public meeting. Consequently, all discussions and debates regarding agenda items are restricted to the members of the board and the superintendent.
Opportunity for public comment is available during the scheduled and unscheduled presentations portion of the board meeting agenda. In-person board meetings allow commenters to read their comments or questions during the "unscheduled presentation" portion of the meeting. While board meetings are being held virtually, comments/questions from the public can be submitted through an online form and are read aloud by the board president during the "unscheduled presentation" portion of the board meeting. The opportunity for public comment remains the same, regardless of whether a board meeting is held virtually or in person. At present the Board’s virtual meetings are being conducted in accordance with Board Policy No. 006.1 adopted by the Board on April 23,2020, necessitated by the current pandemic.
The board will return to in-person meetings when gathering restrictions for indoor facilities are lifted.
