School Board Meetings

The York County School Board typically holds two meetings each month, a work session and a regular meeting. These meetings are broadcast live on YCSD-TV (Cox Cable channel 47 (SD), Cox Cable channel 87 (HD), and Verizon channel 39) and on our YouTube channel. Additionally, the Board may also schedule special meetings, public forums, and public hearings. Agendas for work sessions and monthly business meetings are posted on BoardDocs at least three working days prior to each meeting date. Notice and agendas for special and closed meetings are posted at the same time notice is provided to members of the School Board.

Work Sessions

The School Board holds work sessions to engage in dialogue and discuss specific topics in greater depth and are typically less formal. Work sessions are open to the public but do not include a public comment section. Work sessions are held on the second Monday of the month at 6 p.m. at York Hall, 301 Main Street, Yorktown, VA unless otherwise noted.

Regular Meetings

Regular meetings are held to conduct the business of the schools, act on matters requiring Board approval, and recognize student, staff and community contributions to the school division. Regular meetings are open to the public and citizens wishing to address the Board may do so at these meetings.

Regular Meeting Invocation

The York County School Board has recently elected to add an invocation to the Board's Regular School Board Meetings to add solemnity to the meetings as the Board engages in critical issues which affect York County residents.

The School Board serves constituents of all faiths, and recognizes no faith as superior or inferior to others. As such, the Board invites those individuals who are either leaders of local churches or individuals with no religious affiliation to offer an invocation, moment of silence or a brief statement to reflect on the gravity of the business before the Board.

The Board's regular meeting is usually held on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. The invocation will be placed on the Board's agenda prior to the business portion of the meeting, roughly 30-45 minutes after the start of the meeting.

The following invocation procedures have been established for those offering an invocation. If you are interested, please complete the online form and someone will contact you further with scheduling information. Invocation opportunities will be offered in the order of our receipt of your completed form online.
