The Austin School Board is a policy-making body, responsible for the district's curriculum, personnel and physical facilities. They work hard for Austin Public School students and encourage your involvement and feedback. The public is invited and encouraged to attend School Board meetings.

Please call 507 460-1900 with any questions concerning school board meetings.

The meeting agenda is posted on the district web site and in the Superintendent's Office at 401 Third Avenue NW three days prior to each meeting. School Board minutes are also posted on the district web site and published regularly in the Austin Daily Herald. The meetings are aired live on Charter cable channel 16 and rebroadcast at 5:00 PM each Saturday and Sunday. Please note cable channel 16 is only active during live broadcasts or tape replays.

During each regular School Board meeting, the Board will allow members of the audience to address the Board. Please observe the following guidelines:

  • The speaker is asked to identify him/herself by name and, if he/she represents an organization, to name the group. Remarks should be addressed to the Board as a whole.

  • Delegations must be represented by not more than three (3) spokespersons, with the same five (5) minute limitations for each.
  • The School Board will not hear complaints about individual school employees or permit discussion of such matters in an open meeting. Charges or complaints of such nature shall be presented in writing to school administration and signed by the person making the complaint. Thereafter, such discussion shall be conducted in a closed meeting.
  • The Chairperson of the Board may terminate the right of any speaker to continue should they be accompanied by people whose behavior is improper.
