The Prince William County School Board will hold a hybrid physical/virtual Public Meeting on the Superintendent’s Proposed FY 2022 Budget on Monday, Feb. 8, 2021. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m., at the Kelly Leadership Center, located at 14715 Bristow Road, Manassas.

The 6:00 p.m. meeting will be open to the public, subject to social distancing restrictions. Citizens must wear face coverings and will be provided with distanced seating.

While some School Board members will physically assemble in the School Board meeting room, due to the ongoing pandemic and medical conditions preventing their physical attendance, other members of the School Board are expected to participate in the meeting through electronic means, as permitted by School Board Policy 139, “School Board Member Participation in Meetings by Electronic Communication,” and Va. Code § 2.2-3708.2 (A) (1) (A) (3) and/or under the authority granted by the General Assembly on April 22, 2020 through Amendment 29 to HB 29.

Due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency and legal restrictions on the School Board’s authority to conduct it meetings through electronic means, unlike other public bodies meeting electronically under more expansive legal authority, all discussion at this meeting by Board members, staff, and citizens must be limited to the Superintendent’s Proposed Budget for FY2022. Citizens may speak for two minutes. When the Board is able to resume regular meetings without the virtual participation permitted during the State of Emergency, expanded citizen comment will be resumed as provided by Policy 134. In the interim, Citizen Comment time has been reinstated on a limited basis in order to allow public comment both in person and through electronic means during the State of Emergency. Citizens are encouraged to submit their comments by email to the Clerk who will share them with the School Board. Those citizens who have signed up in advance with the School Board Clerk via email no later than 4:00 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 8, 2021, may address the School Board in person or virtually on the FY2022 Proposed Budget.

If you would like to sign up to speak either in person or electronically at the meeting, email pwcsclerk@pwcs.edu to be placed on the list to speak. Please provide your address and telephone number for the record and state if you will attend in person or participate virtually. Those wishing to speak electronically will be provided with a link to register to do so. Citizens who wish to speak in person or electronically must sign up with the Clerk by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 8, 2021.

Those who do not wish to speak to the Board in person or electronically, but wish to submit a written public statement about the agenda topic may provide input to the School Board by accessing the public comment page or by sending an email to the School Board. Please email pwcsclerk@pwcs.edu for the link to the Public Comment Page.
