The Ben Franklin Academy (BFA) Board of Directors (Board) generally holds its regular meetings at 5:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month at BFA.  Board meetings are open to the public and are conducted in compliance with Colorado Open Meetings Requirements.  All are welcome to attend.  The time and location of all Board meetings are posted on the school website calendar.  If you would like to be proactively notified about all regular and special board meetings, please email BFA’s Board Secretary to be added to our “sunshine” distribution list.

Agendas are posted below 24 hours prior to a meeting.  The Board Calendar serves as a guideline for Board agenda items.  If you would like to appear before the Board, please email the Board President. We’d love to see you at these meetings.

Because we recognize that many BFA community members may be unable to attend the Board meetings in person, we will be “broadcasting” our Board meetings by listen-only teleconference.  Call-in information will be listed on the top of the agenda for each meeting.

The agenda will be strictly followed and the Board welcomes comments from members of the public during the public comment time set aside on the agenda on any topic. The Board may choose to respond to public comments during this open forum but is not required to do so.  The Board will only take action on items listed on the agenda. For other matters, the Board will receive comments only, and may, at its discretion, refer the matter or calendar the issue for future discussion.

Open comments can be made in person at a Board meeting or submitted through the form below before noon on the day of the Board meeting.  Open Comment Forms received by the deadline will be read out loud during the open comment period of the Board meeting.  Any Open Comment Forms received after 12:00 p.m. on the day of the Board meeting will be read at the next regular meeting of the Board.
