How to Watch the School Board Online
The school board sometimes meets via video-teleconference rather than in person, or in a hybrid format. You may watch the live stream of action meetings through the district's YouTube channel or the FCPS Video on Demand service. You can also gather at the John D. Price Administration Building (450 Park Place) to watch the meetings on a large screen.
If a board planning meeting is virtual or hybrid, you can watch on the big screen in our conference room but it does not stream.

From Kentucky's attorney general:
KRS 61.826 was amended in 2018 to allow public agencies to conduct any meeting, including a closed meeting, through video teleconference. On March 18, 2020, state Attorney General Daniel Cameron provided guidance on whether they must identify a primary physical location for such meetings per KRS 61.840 during the state of emergency. The opinion, OAG 20-05, finds public agencies are not required to identify a primary physical location for video teleconference meetings given the urgent need for social distancing during the public health crisis. However, while the state of emergency is in effect, agencies are required to identify a website, television station, or other means that the public can access to view the meeting. The opinion notes that public agencies must continue to provide critical services during the emergency declaration and are required to conduct public business in open meetings and permit news media coverage of all meetings. However, providing a physical location for such meetings is not feasible given public health recommendations and guidelines for COVID-19.
