In The Know: Fulton County School officials will take a working retreat


The Fulton County Board of Education will meet Tuesday, April 26 for its routinely-held working retreat, beginning at 10 a.m. 

The board will adjourn into executive session immediately following the discussion topics at approximately 2:45 p.m. They will then convene for public vote, if needed, on executive session items immediately after executive session.

All meetings of the school board are open to the public unless designated as executive session where, by law, the board must convene in private to discuss land, legal, or personnel items. Any vote resulting from executive session discussion, however, will occur in an open public setting. Social distancing will be practiced at all meetings and hearings, and therefore space for attendees may be reduced.

The meeting will be held at Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein located at 1075 Peachtree St NE Ste 1500, Atlanta, GA 30309.
