Public Participation and Public Comment at Board Meetings
How You Can Participate
All schools and school events, inclusive of Board of Education meetings, should be places where mutual respect is practiced and reinforced and where all persons in attendance treat each other with courtesy, politeness and mutual consideration, regardless of differences of opinion.
Community residents are invited and encouraged to attend all regular meetings, public hearings, and all other meetings of the Board and its committees. In accordance with the Open Meeting Law, executive sessions are not open to the public.
Residents of the District may address the Board at regular meetings during the agenda item on Public Speaking. Click here to see the policy on Public Participation at Board Meetings. To address the Board, you must submit a request to the District Clerk on a speaker's request card. Speaker Request cards are available from the District Clerk immediately prior to the start of the meeting. Fully completed cards must be returned to the District Clerk before the scheduled start of the meeting. Those recognized by the President may address the Board. Speakers must limit their remarks to three minutes. If reading from a prepared statement, a copy should be given to the District Clerk. Speakers who wish to give any documents or materials to the Board must give them to the District Clerk before the scheduled start of the meeting. Speakers are asked to be mindful of the District's Civility and Decorum policy, and to address the Board in a courteous way.
Exceptions to Public Speaking
If you have concerns about your child or other school-related matters, you are asked to first try to resolve them at the level most directly involved - usually the classroom teacher or school principal. The Board will not permit discussions in public sessions involving individual district personnel, any Board agent, or students. Persons wishing to discuss matters involving individual district personnel or students should present their comments and/or concerns to the Superintendent during regular business hours.
