Public comment at school board meetings
The Corvallis School Board values the opinions and input of community members. General guidelines are provided to help make the most of your time when communicating with the school board. Members of the public have the opportunity to share their ideas and opinions with the school board during the agenda item labeled Public Comment.
- Public comment is typically taken during the board’s business meetings and generally limited to three minutes per individual.
- A Request to Address the Board card must be completed prior to the start of the board meeting.
- The board secretary will announce the name of individuals who will be called to provide public comment.
- If more comment requests are submitted than can be accommodated during the allotted time on the board’s agenda, written comments may be submitted to the board secretary.
If you wish to submit a letter or any form of written comments, copies will be provided to all board members and key staff members. The document will be maintained as part of the official board record. Letters, emails, and other written materials are considered public records.
