Speaking at Board Meetings

Any person wishing to appear before the School Board must file a written request with the director of schools (10) days prior to the School Board meeting.  This request of being placed on the agenda must include an explanation of the reason for the request in order to give the director and Board members time to research the nature and details of the situation surrounding this request.   If approved, each citizen will be given two minutes to address the Board.  Any person wishing to discuss or make comment concerning any item on the agenda must sign-up on a form provided at each Board meeting.  Comments must be directed only toward that particular item on the agenda.

Board Meeting Etiquette
