Addressing the Board at Board Meetings

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

    • Speakers to Agenda Items - During any board meeting, people may speak about items on the agenda for that meeting.
    • Hearing of the Community - During the regular monthly board meeting, people may speak about a district-related subject not covered by an item on the meeting agenda.
