CAMDEN, NJ — For the first time, the Camden City School District (CCSD) will carry out its monthly board meeting solely online, with the coronavirus pandemic not making it possible to meet in person.

Tuesday's 5:30 p.m. board meeting will be the first since the death of board president Martha Wilson. Details on the process of filling her vacancy are forthcoming, the district said. 

"All residents are invited to 'attend' the meeting and/or participate in the public comment portion of the meeting by following [our] directions," the CCSD said in an announcement Friday. "Consistent with the district’s normal practice, the meeting will be recorded and shown on Channel 19 and ​YouTube.​"
