Previously, trustees typically met at 6:15 p.m. on the first and third Thursdays of each month.
Starting in 2020, trustees will meet on the third and fourth Thursdays each month. The start time will remain the same.
January’s meetings are scheduled for Jan. 16 and 23, according to LISD.
The board also set aside dates for potential future joint meetings with city officials within LISD. Those dates are Jan. 30 and Feb. 6 and 13.
The meeting change was explained to trustees by Superintendent Bruce Gearing at the Oct. 17 board meeting. According to Gearing, the first meeting, to be called “agenda review,” will center around discussion of—but not voting on—agenda items. The second meeting, which Gearing called the "formal meeting,” will be for decisions and votes.
Special called meetings will remain an option for taking action, Gearing said.
Trustees approved the 2020 schedule changes at the Nov. 7 meeting.
