Addressing the Board at Board Meetings

  • The Board of Education welcomes members of the community to speak on subjects related to the school district. Citizens can address the board in one of two ways:

    • Speakers to Agenda Items - During an Agenda Review meeting and the regular board meeting, people may speak about items that the board will vote on during its regular monthly meeting.
    • Hearing of the Community - During the regular monthly board meeting, people may speak about a subject not covered by an item on the regular monthly meeting agenda.
