PLEASE READ

  1. The School Board welcomes comments from members of the public on matters related to the school district. To ensure that members of the public have a convenient and timely opportunity to speak, the Board has established a set of guidelines. The School Board reserves the right to suspend the guidelines during specially called meetings or other unusual circumstances.
  2. Please understand that although we respect your right to speak, we cannot allow disorderly behavior, personal attacks, or disruptive conduct. If you persist, we reserve the right to silence the microphone.
  3. The School Board will convene at 3:30 p.m. to hear public comment. This time will be set aside to allow the speakers to have the full focus of the board. The business portion of the meeting will then begin at 4:00 p.m.
  4. Speakers will be granted three minutes to address the board. When 10 or more speakers wish to speak during public comment, the board may reduce the time to two minutes per speaker. Speakers can sign up online or in person, all speakers must check in with the Communications staff at least 15 minutes prior to the start of public comment. The Board reserves the right to modify the speaking time based on the circumstances of any individual Board meeting.
  5. During the 30-minute time allotment, speakers who wish to address a particular agenda item will be given priority over those wishing to make general comments.
  6. The guidelines above will be in effect for most School Board meetings. However, the Board chair may, on occasion, seek consensus among Board members to revise or suspend the guidelines as circumstances (such as a Board meeting scheduled at an unusual time) warrant.
