Public Act 254 permits telephonic or video conferencing meetings, in whole or in part, under the following circumstances:

  • Before March 31, 2021 and retroactive to March 18, 2020, under any circumstances.

This allows the Public Schools of Petoskey's Board of Education to meet electronically via ZOOM.  

With the safety of our public, staff, and students in mind, meetings will be held electronically.  Information is provided below for persons interested in attending the meeting or commenting during the public forum portion of the meeting.

Board of Education Meetings

Board of Education meetings are traditionally held on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Spitler Administration Building's Board Room, 1130 Howard Street, Petoskey.  Please call 231-348-2100 with questions.

Participation by the audience is welcomed and encouraged.  Please note that this time is for Board members to listen to public comment, not to respond to comments. Two opportunities for public comment are provided at each Board meeting.  When participating in public comment, members of the audience are to identify themselves by name and address so that accurate minutes can be recorded.  Unless permission is previously received from the Board of Education, comments are to be limited to three (3) minutes per person.  For those people who prefer not to speak at the Board meeting yet want their question(s) or comment(s) conveyed to Board members, a (green) "Memo to the Board" form is provided in the basket near the entrance of the meeting room.  Please note that public comment time and the "Memo to the Board" are provided to allow Board members to listen to public comment, not respond to comments or concerns.

Board of Education Function

Public Schools of Petoskey's Board of Education is comprised of five community members who have each been elected to a four-year term.  The primary function of the Board of Education is to oversee the education of people in our community. The Board is responsible for establishing and implementing all district policies and procedures required to maintain an excellent educational program for all students in a safe, secure learning environment. These policies and procedures guide the Superintendent and staff in their daily duties.
