Meetings of the Vidalia City Board of Education (VBOE) are held the second Tuesday of each month at 5:00 PM in the board room at the Vidalia City Board of Education Office Building at 1001 North Street, West, Vidalia, Georgia. The VBOE also conducts luncheon meetings at 12:00 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month (except November - 3rd Thursday) when school is in session and they are held at the schools on a rotating basis.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IN BOARD MEETINGS
Meetings of the Board of Education are held to conduct the affairs and business of the school system. Although these meetings are not meetings of the public, the public is invited to attend all meetings and citizens are invited to address the Board at all regular meetings at the time shown on the agenda and in accordance with procedures established by the Board or the Superintendent. Public participation may be allowed in the discretion of the Board at certain additional meetings under procedures set by the Board.

Policy development in a modern, forward-looking school system is a dynamic, ongoing process. New problems, concerns, issues, and needs give rise to the continuing need to develop new policies or to revise existing ones.
The Vidalia City
School District operates according to policies established by the Board. The Board,
which represents both the State and local community, develops the policies
after careful deliberation, and the school administration implements them
through specific rules and regulations. The Board then appraises the effects of
its policies and makes revisions as necessary.
In the interest
of harmony, efficiency, uniformity of interpretation, coordination of effort,
and in fairness to all concerned, the Board makes this manual available to all
who are affected by its policies. This will enable the Board to devote more
time to its primary duty - the development of long- range policies and planning
for the future of the school system.
