Public Participation in Board Meetings
The board recognizes the importance of citizen participation in school district matters. In order to assure citizens are heard and board meetings are conducted efficiently and in an organized manner, the board may set time aside for citizen participation, either at a specific time during the meeting or during the discussion of agenda items. Citizens wishing to address the board, or wishing to bring a petition to the board, must notify the Board President and/or superintendent prior to the board meeting. Those wishing to address the board, or bring a petition to the board, will follow the same procedures outlined in the regulations. The board has the discretion to limit the amount of time set aside for public participation.
If the pressure of business or other circumstances dictate, the board president may decide to suspend this practice. The board president will recognize these individuals to make their comments at the appropriate time. The orderly process of the Board meeting will not be interfered with or disrupted. Only those speakers who follow regulations and are recognized by the board president will be allowed to speak. Comments by others are out of order. If disruptive, the individual causing disruption may be asked to leave the board meeting.Download PDF
