The Washington County Board of Education (WCBOE) will hold a public business meeting at 6:00 p.m. on March 2, 2021 following a Public Hearing regarding the Board of Education's FY2022 draft budget. WCBOE members and presenters only will participate in person at the Center for Education Services (CES). CES is limiting public visitors as an added precaution at this time.
