Public Comment and Testimony Guidelines
Time is allocated at each Business Meeting of the Board of
Education for members of the public to address the Board on issues of
concern. While not required, we ask that you call the Superintendent’s
Office in advance of the meeting. This allows us to allocate additional
time for public comments when necessary.
On the day of the meeting, you will be asked to sign the sheet on the
podium inside the entrance door. If you have hand-outs or written
testimony, please bring six (6) copies and give them to the Board
assistant upon your arrival. She will distribute them to Board members.
When you are called to speak, please state your name for the record
and limit your comments to three (3) minutes. If you officially
represent an organization, you may speak for five (5) minutes.
To protect individual confidentiality, we ask you not to mention specific students or staff members in your remarks.

comments and concerns, it cannot respond to your questions or enter into
