Public Comment

Privilege of the Floor is available for district residents to speak to the Board of Education at the beginning and end of Board of Education meetings. The policy for Privilege of the Floor is as follows:

“Persons wishing to speak should first be recognized by the President and identify themselves. Any group or organization wishing to address the Board must identify a single spokesperson. Comments should be brief and concise, generally not exceeding two minutes per speaker which may be extended at the discretion of the Board President. Speakers may comment on matters related to district business only. The Board will not permit in public session discussions involving district personnel or students. Persons wishing to discuss matters involving individual district personnel or students should present their comments and/or concerns to the superintendent during regular business hours. All speakers are to conduct themselves in a civil manner. Obscene language, libelous statements, threats of violence, statements advocating racial, religious, or other forms of prejudice will not be tolerated.”
