Public Participation at Board Meetings

A specific portion of each Board agenda provides attendees the privilege of the floor.

Valid, intelligent decisions on important, complex matters always are made through possession of complete information.  For this reason, as well as to permit mature deliberation, it is not advisable for the Board of Education to act on items that are not on the agenda, or on which its members do not have full information.  Therefore, the Board of Education shall not act on presentations made by the public at the meeting of presentation, but merely take such issues under advisement for further study and action. 


Procedure for Presentations

1.  A person or persons wishing to address the Board of Education should make their requests, preferably in writing, to the Superintendent, indicating the subject of their presentation.

2.  When recognized, one should rise, state one's name and address, and the subject of the remarks to be made.  Upon conclusion of the presentation, the person who has made the remarks should remain in order to respond to questions from Board members or the Superintendent.

3.  Time limitations on the length of presentations may be imposed, either before or during the presentation by the President of the Board.


Order of Business

The order of business of all regular Board of Education meetings shall be as follows:
A.  Call of order
B.  Hearing of visitors
C.  Consent items
D. Financial reports
E. New business
- Resolutions
- Information Items
F.  Communications
