|Speaking at Board Meetings|
Because the School Board desires to hear the viewpoints of citizens on district or school-wide concerns, an opportunity will be provided for the public to speak at regular meetings. An opportunity will be provided for the public to speak at regular meetings in accordance with these established procedures:
- Each regular Board meeting agenda will provide a 30-minute time period in which citizens may address the Board to express viewpoints or concerns on agenda or non-agenda items. The 30-minute time period may be extended at the discretion of the Board President of Chair or by a Board motion. Each citizen will be allowed up to four minutes to address the Board providing s/he has additional/new information that has not been previously shared at the meeting.
- Citizens wishing to address the Board during the 30-minute time limit must sign up no later than five minutes before the start of the Board meeting. A sign up sheet will be provided and will be located by the posted agenda outside the meeting room.
- During the Committee Meeting of the Board of Education, under “Items for Discussion” citizens may ask questions and/or request clarification on the topic of discussion after the Board has discussed the item. There is not a requirement to sign up previous to this discussion.
- The Board will not hear personal complaints of school personnel nor any person connected with the school system in a public forum.
