PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

A portion of each regular school board meeting is designated to recognize visitors and provide them an opportunity to address the Board. The Board requests that the Rules of Procedure are read prior to addressing the Board publicly.

RULES OF PROCEDURE

  1. Community members wishing to be heard by the Board MUST sign in before the commencement of the meeting. The Board President will call upon you to speak during the “Delegations” portion of the agenda. When it is your turn to be heard, please state your name and the question or comment you would like to make. Your comments must be limited to three minutes.
  2. Please do not mention staff members or students by name. The proper protocol for lodging concerns would be teacher, principal, superintendent. All concerns brought directly to the Board will be relegated back to the proper party responsible for the issue.
  3. No action will be taken in response to a petition at a Board meeting. Petitions will be referred to the Superintendent for consideration and recommendation of appropriate action.
  4. Please be respectful and civil toward others. Silence of audience members during the meeting is appreciated so that the business of the Board of Education can be conducted without distraction.


* This represents only a partial listing of the guidelines. All guidelines are subject to change at the direction of the Board President.
