PYT Client Alert: Board Training during COVID19

Board Training During COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted school districts across the state in ways that seemed unimaginable a few weeks ago, but no matter the circumstances, school boards are still required to complete necessary training.

Governor Abbott has relaxed the requirements under the Open Meetings Act, allowing for school board members and superintendents to meet via live webinar.

The PYT team aims to be as accommodating as we can, so please reach out if you would like our attendance on your district's Zoom board meeting.
