 At a Board Meeting

The Board of Education encourages your participation in its deliberations.  If you wish to address the Board on an agenda item, please obtain a card that is on the table along with the agenda; fill out the card completely and give it to the board secretary.  Your card will be presented to the Superintendent who will call you at the appropriate time during the discussion of that agenda item.  

If you wish to address the Board on an item that is not on the agenda, you may speak during the Public Comment on non agenda items section of the agenda.  Board members are legally prohibited from discussing non-agenda items and, therefore, will not respond to items presented during this portion of the meeting.
