About Public Comments at Board Meetings

The Board of Education respects the rights of citizens to speak at their monthly business meetings.

The Treasurer will monitor the time and the Board President will ensure the ground rules are followed appropriately – this applies to recorded messages as well as live ones.

The Board President will determine if a response will be made to the comments. They will direct the Superintendent / Treasurer to respond if deemed necessary.

Community comments are one way for citizens to communicate with the Board of Education. You should include your name, address, and topic in your message.

Remember, this is a formal and official meeting of the Board of Education and what you say becomes part of the official meeting record.

If your comment involves a problem with a student, employee, or board member please do not identify them by name.

At this time, the primary role of the Board of Education is to listen and reflect on what is said. Whether we respond or not, your input is valued.
