August 20, 2019 - Special Board meeting-
A special meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. The purpose of this special meeting is to rescind a resolution passed on July 23, 2019 proposing a territorial transfer, to consider the approval of the first resolution of the territorial transfer from Newbury Local School District to West Geauga Local School District and to consider the approval of legal services. Due to conflicting legal opinions regarding the timeline of Territory Transfer, and in the interest of clarity and transparency related to that timeline, the Geauga County Educational Service Center Governing Board is re-issuing the resolution proposing the transfer of the Newbury Local School District territory to the West Geauga Local School District. Doing so involves rescinding its resolution dated July 23, 2019, and placing a new resolution on the August 20, 2019 special board meeting agenda at 6:30 p.m. at the Auburn Technology Learning Center in room 106. This action of the Board will erase any confusion related to the territory transfer timeline and associated activities.
