Board of Education
Waterford Board of Education regular and COW meetings will be held virtually until further notice. Effective April 1, 2021, a school board may conduct a virtual meeting in whole or in part to accommodate absent board members due to military duty or a medical condition, or a statewide local state of emergency or state of disaster. The local state of emergency enacted by the Waterford Township Board of Trustees remains in place to the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this order, the Waterford School District public meetings will remain virtual, via Zoom.
The public is encouraged to participate by making public comments during the designated times at each meeting. Participants can use the raise hand feature on Zoom or send a request to speak in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to COVID-19 health and safety concerns, and in accordance with the Executive Order of the Governor, meetings will be held virtually, until further notice.
