School board sets meeting calendar for year

COVINGTON -- The Newton County Board of Education has set its meeting schedule for the rest of the year.

Typically, the school board holds a work session on the second Tuesday of each month and a regular session meeting on the third Tuesday of each month, but some months may stray from the schedule due to school breaks or other conflicts.

This year, the school board will meet tonight for a monthly work session and Feb. 26 for a regular session monthly meeting. The members also will meet March 12 and 19, April 9 and 16, May 14 and 21, June 25, July 16, Aug. 13 and 20, Sept. 10 and 17, Oct. 15 and 22, Nov. 12 and 19 and Dec. 17, according to the schedule that the board adopted last month.

In February, the school system's Winter Break is scheduled for Feb. 18 through 22, and in October, Fall Break is scheduled for Oct. 7 through 11, moving those meetings. The school board is expected to travel to the Georgia School Boards Association conference the week of June 14.

All monthly work session and regular sessions meetings are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

The Board meets in the board room at the Newton County BOE building, which is located at 2109 Newton Drive NE in Covington.
