Public Comment Process

The school board welcomes public comment. The guidelines below are in place to help meet the board’s goal of hearing from as many people as possible on a variety of topics within the timeframe of the meeting. The board chair may ask that a representative speak on behalf of a group, limit total time for public comment, and call speakers out of order. This is time for the board to listen, not respond to comment.

  1. Sign up only for yourself (not others) and include your name, organization you represent (if any), city of residence, and topic/agenda item number.
  2. Each person speaks for him/herself (time may not be yielded to another person).
  3. Each person may only speak once during each section of public comment.
  4. Comments are limited to three minutes per speaker.
  5. Avoid naming individual students and staff when you speak.
  6. If you have printed material to present to the board, please give 10 copies to the board secretary when it is your turn to speak.

Thank you for helping ensure an informative and productive time for everyone
