Regular meetings of the Guilderland Board of Education are usually held Tuesday evenings, twice a month. The meetings begin at 7 p.m. and are held in the high school large group instruction (LGI) room. All meetings are open to the public and broadcast live on Spectrum Cable Channel 1302/33 within the Town of Guilderland.

Due to the Governor’s executive order temporarily changing the laws governing public meetings during the COVID-19 public health crisis, the Board of Education meetings will take place via videoconferencing or in-person and livestreamed to YouTube until further notice.
