Policy on Public Participation at Board Meetings

An opportunity for visitors to address the Board of Education is provided during the two "Public Comment" portions of the meeting. The Board of Education encourages public participation at its meetings and recognizes its responsibility to hear public comment.

Prior to addressing the board, individuals must first notify the district clerk and complete a sign-up form before the start of the meeting. If you know well in advance that you would like to address the board, you may contact the district clerk at 456-6200, ext. 3125, to receive and then return the sign-up form in order to be included on the agenda.

In general, comments should not exceed three to four minutes and should relate to school matters. Although the Board of Education welcomes comments about programs offered by the district and the efforts of its staff, the discussion of matters related to specific individuals is expressly prohibited. Persons who desire to speak to the board about such matters should request an Executive Session in a letter written to the Board President, briefly outlining the issue to be discussed. Granting such requests will be at the discretion of the board.
