School Board Meetings

Meetings of the Davenport Community School Board are held to conduct the business of the Davenport Community Schools, which serve the communities of Blue Grass, Buffalo, Davenport, and Walcott.

The start time for Regular meetings of the School Board was changed by the Board at the July 14th, 2014 Board Meeting to begin at 6:00PM (instead of 7:00PM)  the second and fourth Mondays of the month. These meetings are held in the third-floor Jim Hester Board Room of the Davenport Schools Achievement Service Center at 1606 Brady St.

The School Board also conducts Committee-of-the-Whole meetings at 5:30 p.m. on the first Monday of the month also in the Jim Hester Board Room. At these meetings, board members discuss a variety of topics but do not vote or take any  action.

School Board meetings, including discussions and actions, are conducted in open session. The School Board only convenes in closed session, as provided by the Iowa Open Meetings Law, to discuss such things as personnel evaluations, litigation, real estate purchases, and student expulsions.

Streaming videos of the regular board meetings are available on our website and are also  televised Wednesdays at noon on Mediacom Cable Channel 19.
