The Stryker Local Schools Board of Education appreciates having school district residents, staff, students, and other interested persons attend its meetings. As a resident of the Stryker Local School District, you have local control over your public schools.

Board of Education Meeting
Stryker Local Schools 400 South Defiance Street Stryker, OH 43557
The Board of Education regularly meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Special meetings are held at other times for school matters which need the Board’s attention. Most meetings are held in the Art room located in the High School. All Board meetings are open to the public and the media are notified of the meetings. From time to time meetings may be rescheduled at a different date due to conflicts.
Ohio Law permits the Board to hold executive sessions during meetings. During these sessions, the Board may discuss:
Executive sessions are for discussion only and the Board cannot take any action during executive session.
The agenda for each board meeting is prepared by the superintendent in consultation with the board president. The tentative agenda along with all supporting material is delivered to all board members for their review prior to the board meeting. The tentative agenda is available to the news media and interested citizens who file a written request to the treasurer.

Questions and Concerns
Parent's questions regarding individual students should be discussed with the teacher first and then, if necessary, with the principal or administrator who is closest to the situation. If still further discussion seems necessary, the question can be referred to the superintendent, who may consider the matter himself or assign a staff member to resolve it. This procedure has been effective for most people because a direct response is obtained by the questioner and at the same time, frees the board to consider matters that affect the entire district.
Guidelines for Public Participation
In order for the Board to fulfill its obligation to complete the planned agenda, a maximum of thirty (30) minutes of public participation will be permitted at each meeting. Each statement made by a participant shall be limited to five (5) minutes duration. All persons wishing to participate in a public board meeting shall register their intent with the treasurer twenty-four (24) hours in advance of the meeting and include:
The period of public participation may be extended by a vote of the majority of the Board. Each person addressing the Board will give his/her name and address.
