2013-14 APS Board of Education

The Aurora Public Schools Board of Education meetings are generally held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 6 p.m. The meetings are open to the public.

In 2015-16, the Board meetings will follow one of these formats: Regular Business Meetings, Board Work Sessions, Board Workshops and Executive Sessions. Board agendas identify the meeting format.

Regular Business Meetings

Regular Business Meetings provide the Board an opportunity to conduct its formal business. These meetings will be held at the Dr. Ed Lord and Patricia Lord Board Room, Educational Services Center - 4, 1085 Peoria St.

Board Work Sessions and Workshops

Work Sessions and Workshops provide the Board an opportunity to develop strategies and tasks for accomplishing key goals. The sessions may also provide the Board an opportunity to work with staff, parents, students and/or community members to better understand key initiatives and issues. These sessions will generally be held in the Mt. Massive Conference Room of the APS Professional Learning and Conference Center, 15771 E. 1st Ave.

Executive Sessions

Executive Sessions, which are closed to the public, provide the Board an opportunity to discuss topics such as personnel items, negotiations and consultations with legal staff.  The Board will also hold targeted community engagement sessions at other dates and times to gather feedback on its work.
