Within the limits of the Texas Open Meetings Act, parts of the Board meetings may be closed to the public for topics including, but not limited to: real estate transactions, personnel matters, student hearings, and legal matters.
To Address the Board:
The public may address the Board during the public participation portion of the Board meeting. Remarks may be related to any topic, whether agenda items or non-agenda items, and are limited to five minutes. Those wishing to speak during public participation may sign the roster that is located right outside the conference room.
Notice of meetings, approved board agendas are available here.
Texas Open Meetings Act, the Texas Government Code, Chapter 551 requires a school board to give a public advance written notice of the subjects it will consider in a regular, special, or called meeting. The notice must also state the date, hour and place of the meeting. A school district must post notice of meetings at a place at the central administrative office of the district that is generally accessible to the general public for at least 72 hours before the scheduled time of the meeting. The only exception to the 72-hour posting requirement is for “emergency” meetings and those meetings must meet the requirements of Texas Government Code Chapter 551.045. In cases of emergency, the board must post notice of the date, place and subject of the meeting for not less than 2 hours prior to the meeting.
Universal Academy’s Board Agendas are posted on the glass window by the Central Administration office building 2616 N. MacArthur Blvd. Irving, Texas 75062.
