Board of Education

The Athens-Meigs ESC Governing Board is made up of seven elected members from school districts within the AMESC service region along with two at-large members.  The governing board typically meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM at our Chauncey location.  Upon request to the Superintendent, the Center shall make reasonable accommodation for a disabled person to be able to participate in this activity.

The Board of Education recognizes the value of school governance of public comment on educational issues and the importance of allowing members of the public to express themselves on school matters of community interest.

According to the Public Participation at Board Meetings Policy, any person or group wishing to place an item on the agenda shall register their intent with the Superintendent in writing no later than five (5) days prior to the meeting and include:

  • name and address of the participant;
  • group affiliation, if and when appropriate; and
  • topic to be addressed.

The Public Participation Form is located under DOCUMENTS on the right sidebar of this page and can be:

Board Member Compensation

AMESC Board Members are compensated for their service at the statutory maximum, $125 per meeting (Ohio Revised Code Section (RC) 3313.12, 3311.19).  In addition to being compensated for their attendance at meetings, Board Members are reimbursed for mileage to and from board meetings at the current government rate (RC 3311.19).


Records Retention Schedule

The Governing Board is responsible for maintaining the public records of this Educational Service Center and to make such records available to residents of Ohio for inspection and reproduction per the Public Records Policy. The Records Retention Schedule dictates how long each record series is going to be retained.  Having a retention schedule enables the AMESC to destroy eligible records on an on-going basis.  The AMESC Records Custodian:
