Board of Education Meetings
The Zeeland Board of Education conducts its regular monthly meetings at 6:00 p.m. in the Zeeland West High School cafeteria, 3390 100th Avenue, unless otherwise noted in the below schedule. These business meetings provide time for you to address the group with your remarks. This opportunity occurs at the start of each meeting during “acknowledgment of visitors.” Each person is allowed five minutes to give comment. We encourage to you contact the superintendent’s office ahead of time if you plan to speak to the board. This ensures that you are recognized at the start of the meeting. The Board occasionally announces a work study meeting to discuss one topic at length. We will list work study meeting dates and times in advance.
