Those wishing to address the Board must live within the boundaries of the District, be a student, parent or guardian of a student, be a District employee, or represent a firm eligible to bid on materials or services solicited by the Board. Others who wish to speak, but do not meet the above criteria, must receive permission from the Board President.
Citizens are invited to speak during the time specified for Public Comment. This is the time to voice opinions about specific agenda item(s) prior to any Board action. Speakers must complete the Public Comment Form and submit it electronically prior to 3:00 p.m. on the day of a regularly scheduled Board meeting. If written testimony or a handout is submitted, presenters are asked to supply one (1) copy to the Board Secretary.
Tips for addressing the Board:
~ Complete a speakers card online with name, address and topic.
~ Limit comments to three minutes.
~ Identify yourself before speaking.
~ Groups representing a consistent viewpoint are encouraged to select one spokesperson.
By law, the Board is allowed to take action only on items on the agenda. For other matters, the Board will receive comments only at the end of the meeting, and may, at their discretion, refer the matter to district staff or calendar the issue for future discussion.
NOTE: REQUESTS ARE ONLY ACCEPTED FOR THE UPCOMING, REGULARLY SCHEDULED BOARD MEETING.
