PUBLIC PARTICIPATION at MONTHLY BOARD MEETINGS
Open, or Regular, Board meetings are meetings held in public, not public meetings. The Public Forum segment of Board meetings is a 20-minute period of time reserved for parents, staff members, or community members to address the Board. The Board president is responsible to maintain proper order, adhere to time limits, and to recognize as many speakers as time permits. Personal criticism and/or derogatory remarks directed at Board members or district employees are out of order and will not be tolerated. The Board will listen to all comments, but is not required to engage in active discussion.
A Public Forum form must be completed and given to the Board president or Board secretary before the meeting begins.
