  • Update on Special Board Meeting July 20th

    Dear Williamston Families and Community Members,

    Toward the start of this evening’s Board Meeting, we experienced “Zoom-bombing,” when the meeting was taken over by unauthorized users. Very inappropriate comments were posted in the chat, hateful, racially insensitive statements were spoken, and unacceptable images were displayed on the screen. The Board acted quickly to end the meeting. We apologize to anyone who was on the link and witnessed these heinous acts. We have rescheduled the meeting for Tuesday July 21st at 6:00 p.m.  We will work with our technology team to implement additional safety measures to ensure this does not happen again.

    Williamston Board of Education
