January 11, 2021 at 6:00 PM - Regular Meeting of the Board of Education

COVID-19 and Social Distancing - In light of the emphasis on social distancing in locations where individuals gather, every effort will be made to arrange the meeting room in a manner that allows room for distancing; nevertheless, individuals are encouraged to be cautious and expected to wear face coverings.  Individuals with a temperature of 100.4 or above should consider avoiding the meeting.  The Norman School District will live-stream this meeting for those that may not be able to physically attend the school board meeting.  State law does not require physical board meetings to be broadcast to the community.  However, we believe that transparency is important and during this time of COVID-19 we will continue to live-stream meetings at https://tinyurl.com/npsboe2020.  Board meetings will be recorded and archived.
