Audience members attending Board of Education meetings are permitted to voice their opinions on school-related topics at specified times during the regular meeting. There are two opportunities for public comment during both the Committee of the Whole sessions and Regular Board Meetings. The fifteen-minute period allotted at the beginning of the meeting is for audience comments on agenda items only. The floor will be open again at the end of the meeting for audience input on any topic concerning the schools.

  • After being officially recognized by the Board President, state your name and address.
  • You may speak for up to two minutes. If speaking at the beginning of the meeting, you must limit your comments to an item on the agenda for that meeting. If speaking at the end of the meeting, you may speak on any topic. The Board of Education may extend the time allowed for public comment at its discretion.
  • All comments must be addressed to the Board of Education and not to fellow audience members.
