The safety and security of our Board, staff, students, and public are a top priority of Eastern Carver County Schools. As a result of recent incidents, the October 25 Open Forum and Board meeting will have different protocols designed to maintain safety and security while allowing the School Board to continue their commitment to hearing from community members.  

Open Forum - Oct. 25

Monday night’s Open Forum will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. at the Chaska High School auditorium. As has been previous practice, Open Forum sign-up will be available on the district website starting at noon on Oct. 25 until it is filled. Speakers will be held to a strict three-minute time limit and the standards of conduct and decorum outlined in the district’s Open Forum guidelines. Open Forum will be live-streamed via a separate link, available on the district website, and posted for future viewing the following day.

School Board Meeting - Oct. 25

The School Board Meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the District Education Center boardroom. Seating will be limited to 30, and seats must be reserved online via the link available on Oct. 25 starting at noon. Overflow will be available in Room 114/116 of the district office. We continue to encourage community members who want to watch the Board meeting to do so online. Meetings are live-streamed, and then available the day after the Board meeting.

Law enforcement will be present at both locations. We want to remind our community that there are multiple ways to connect with the School Board outside of the Open Forum, including via email and phone. Learn more here.
