Public Comment Guidelines

  • Public comment is heard at the Board’s monthly meeting held on the third Thursday of each month starting at 7:00 p.m. Public comment is only available during the regular monthly meeting and not during virtual work sessions held on the first Thursday of each month. 

    Those who wish to speak during a public forum will be asked to arrive early and sign in with the Board's administrative assistant. Speakers may either sign up in advance using the form below, or sign up in person at the meeting. Commenters will be called to speak in the order their sign-up was received, and those who choose to sign up in advance will be called to speak first. Digital sign-up forms must be received no later than 4:00 p.m. on the day of the monthly meeting.

    Speakers must adhere to the following guidelines:

    • Each speaker may be allotted up to three minutes. At the discretion of the Board president prior to the beginning of the meeting, the time limit may be changed to accommodate the number of speakers.

    • Speakers are not to address the Board concerning specific personnel issues at a meeting. A speaker will be immediately stopped if they speak about a personnel issue. Such issues should be addressed using the District’s established procedures for sharing concerns about school personnel.

    • While the Board does not directly respond to a speaker during public comment, the Board will address speakers in the following manner:

      • The Board President may make clarifying remarks at the end of the public comment session to address any misstatements of facts.

      • The Board of Education may also send a written follow-up to a speaker to respond to their question(s).

      • The Board will not entertain public comments or questions outside the Public Forum segment of the meeting.
