A school board meeting is the only means by which a school board can carry out its legal duties or exercise its legal powers. As such, the primary purpose of a school board meeting is to transact business. Secondarily, school board meetings provide opportunities for creative and constructive decision-making by board members while attempting to reach a consensus on strategic issues. In addition, school board meetings offer the public and staff an opportunity to address the Board of Education.

Public Comment

If anyone wishes to address the Board of Education at their regularly scheduled meeting, you will be given time to speak during the Public Comment section of the Meeting. Agendas can be found here. Here are some guidelines for Public Comment at our meetings:

  • Submit the public comment form to the Recording Secretary, Cindy Rodriguez. The form asks for first name and last name of the speaker, as we are required by state law to keep a detailed set of minutes of our meetings.
  • Address the Board only at the appropriate time as indicated on the agenda and when recognized by the Board President.
  • Identify oneself and be brief. Ordinarily, the time for any one person to address the Board during public comments shall be limited to 3 minutes.  When an individual representing a group notifies the Board President and Superintendent in advance of the meeting, the individual may be granted 5 minutes for comments.  The names of the people or organizations the speaker represents must be provided.
  • Observe, when necessary and appropriate, the:
    1. Shortening the time for each person to address the Board during public comment to conserve time and give the maximum number of individuals an opportunity to speak.
    2. Limiting the minutes for public comment during the designated agenda item to allow the Board to attend to other agenda items.  If it is determined to limit the number of minutes for public comments, there shall be a minimum of 30 minutes of comments allowed and then public comments will reopen after the Board addresses the other agenda items.
    3. Determination of procedural matters regarding public participation not otherwise covered in Board policy.
  • Conduct oneself with respect and civility toward others and otherwise abide by Board policy, 8:030Visitors to and Conduct on School Property.
