Board of Education Guidelines

The Open Forum provides an opportunity for the public to address the School Board at every regular meeting. Anyone wishing to speak to the Board should give his/her name and topic they wish to speak about to the Board Secretary before the meeting begins. Written materials help the Board better understand your comments and may be passed out to the Board. The Board President will call upon each person who wishes to speak when it is his/her turn. Comments should be limited to three minutes unless discussed with the Board President before the meeting, and approved by the President and one other Board Officer. Please see Board Policy 0142

  • The Board and Administration will listen to comments. They will not respond at this meeting.

  • All comments must be directed to the Board as a whole, not to any specific member or to any person who is not a Board member.

  • Disrespectful comments, comments of personal nature, and comments about or directed at an individual either by name or inference, will not be allowed.

  • Personnel concerns should be directed through the administrative chain of command, first to the appropriate principal, then to the superintendent, and finally in writing to the Board.
