YouTube Link for Board Meetings

The Closter board of education will hold in-person meetings and may, at its discretion, also stream the meetings online. However, remote comments will not be accepted. Members of the public who wish to make a live comment must do so in person. The board will allow written comments to be submitted in advance and will read the submissions at the appropriate public comment period. See guidelines below for submitting written comments in advance.

Visit the Closter Public Schools YouTube channel for the live streaming of the board of education meeting.

  • Individuals who wish to submit written comments (regarding any government or school district issue that a member of the public feels may be of concern to the residents of the school district) must do so by sending an email with the written comments to the business administrator/board secretary (Floro Villanueva) or by written letter addressed to the Business Administrator/Board Secretary, 340 Homans Avenue, Closter, New Jersey 07624.
  • Comments submitted in writing or by email must include the commenter’s name and address. 
  • Written comments must be received no later than 10:00 a.m. on the day of the meeting. Any comments missing a name or address will not be read. Comments received after 10:00 a.m. the day of the board meeting will be held until the subsequent board meeting. 
  • Written comments will be read aloud and addressed during the meeting in a manner audible to all meeting participants and the public. When reading written comments during a meeting, the person reading the comment will stop reading after the time period slotted to each public comment by policy, no matter how long the written comment is. 
  • The board secretary may summarize duplicative comments as permitted by law, and duplicative comments shall be noted for the record.
