Ballston Spa Board Of Education Meeting Rescheduled

BALLSTON SPA — Turbulent times have struck the Ballston Spa City School District. This comes off the back of the unanimous approval of “Policy 7552 Student Gender Identity” – which has sparked debate both online on sites like Facebook and in person at school board meetings this summer. While recent board meetings haven’t been filmed (another cause for criticism from Ballston Spa parents), the upcoming meeting, originally scheduled for August 17, will be live streamed on the district YouTube channel and published online at a later time. 

The next meeting will take place on August 24, at 7 p.m. in the Ballston Spa High School Library. Members of the community are welcome to attend in person. Currently, masks are optional for those attending meetings. Attendees are asked to respect students, staff and fellow community members who exercise this choice. Please note that as of Wednesday, March 2, 2022, social distancing guidelines have not yet changed. Therefore, there are a limited number of seats available.
