Public Comment at School Board Meetings

  • One of our District's core values is Strong Family & Community Partnerships. There are many ways for family and community members to get involved with our schools.

    In addition, District Policy 180.05 provides an opportunity for the public to address the Board. We value the public comment period and feedback from our stakeholders. To comply with the Open Meetings Law and to ensure consistency, public comment will have the following parameters:

    • Speakers will have three minutes in which to make their comments.  Ms. Katie Heitz will signal the speaker when their time is up.

    • The Board will not comment after each speaker and will reserve discussion to any items on the agenda. Speakers are welcome to stay for the meeting. 

    • Next steps following public comment may include: referral to the appropriate administrator for follow-up with the speaker or placement of the matter on a future Board agenda.
