Preliminary Information

School Board Meeting Procedures

Community members are encouraged to attend school board meetings. We ask that you fill out a "Record of Participation" card (which is available at the meeting) and turn it in to a staff member prior to the item on the agenda you wish to discuss. This ensures that the president of the Board can divide the available time so that all those interested can speak. The YELLOW speaker card is for specific items already on the agenda.

Visitor Non-Agenda Items: Each agenda also contains a "Comments from Audience" section to allow public comment on items NOT listed on the agenda. The BLUE speaker card is for this section. By law, trustees may not enter into discussion nor take action on may item not previously published on the agenda.

Because school board meetings are televised, we ask speakers to come to the podium and identify themselves before speaking.

They have the opportunity to ask questions, and to do research prior to our meeting.
