Public Comment at School Board Meetings

This option is available when Public Comment is an item on the agenda. To offer comments:

  • Complete a “Comment Request” car, which can be found on a table near the entrance to the meeting room, give it to the Board Secretary at the head table before meeting begins.
  • Keep your comments within the specified time allotted, usually three minutes, to allow time for others to comment.
  • Direct your comments to the School Board. The Board Chair will refer questions or requests for action to staff for response at a later date.
  • If you read from a prepared statement, you may choose to leave your written comments with the Board Secretary to post online with the informational packet of the meeting and/or to file with the official minutes of the meeting.
  • Handouts are not required but should you wish to provide them, please bring 13 copies and give them to the Board Secretary to distribute.
  • When you testify, your name, address and comments are matters of public record; however, students and staff do not need to provide their addresses.
