2020-21 Meeting Schedule and Minutes

We welcome families, staff and members of the community to attend our scheduled board meetings, which are currently conducted virtually due to COVID-19. Individuals interested in attending can find the Zoom link available for scheduled meetings. Please note that we will be using Zoom’s “Waiting Room” feature and we ask that members of the community share their identity through their username while in the “Waiting Room,” along with their affiliation with one of our schools, to help us mitigate the risk of “Zoom Bombers.” If you have any questions, please reach out to our Director of Special Projects, Jeremy Thomas, at jsthomas@explorenetwork.org.

All meetings of the Explore Charter Schools Board of Trustees are open to the public in accordance with the New York State Open Meeting Law. Board meeting minutes are available to the public following approval. Meeting locations, dates, and time are subject to change.
