Beyond the Board Room

Beyond the Board Room

BEYOND THE BOARD ROOM is an initiative of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors designed to increase two-way communication between the elected school board members and their constituencies, to keep their constituents informed, and to create a medium for constituent input. The Beyond the Board Room initiative includes:

  • Community Learning Opportunities, which are designed to provide constituents with a better understanding of the role of the Milwaukee Board School Directors. Sessions are interactive and are facilitated by members of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors. All participants in these learning opportunities receive certificates of participation;

  • Community Meetings, which provide an informal forum for communication with members of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors. Community meetings may be offered in the form of open forums, town hall meetings, listening circles, and more; and
  • Newsletters, which are electronic communication from members of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors directly to their constituents. Newsletters include information specific to each Board member's district.

To request a community learning session or community meeting, or to learn how to subscribe to the newsletters, please contact the Office of Board Governance at 414-475-8284.
