THE BOARD OF EDUCATION – CITIZEN PARTICIPATION

The Board of Education recognizes the value to school governance of public comment on educational issues and the importance of allowing members of the public to express themselves on school matters of community interest.

The public may participate during the “Comments from the Public” time, or when recognized by the Board President or Superintendent.  Those wishing to address the Board must fill out request forms provided at the meetings. These should be submitted to the Treasurer before the meeting begins.  Persons addressing the Board must give his/her name and address. There will be a three minute limit for addressing the board.

Such requests shall be subject to the approval of the Superintendent and The Board President.  In order to permit the fair and orderly expression of such comment, the Board shall provide a period for public participation at every regular meeting of the Board and publish rules to govern such participation in Board meetings.

The presiding officer of each Board meeting at which public participation is permitted shall administer the rules of the Board for its conduct.

Upon request to the Superintendent, the District shall make reasonable accommodation for a disabled person to be able to participate in this activity.

·        Executive Sessions may be proposed at any time during the meeting by any Board Member for any purpose authorized by law.

 

·        Per Policy 0166, public complaints about district personnel may be heard in Executive Session.

 

--------------------------------------------

*1 What is a consent agenda? At every board meeting, at least a few items come to the agenda that do not need any discussion or debate either because they are routine procedures or are already unanimous consent. A consent agenda (Roberts Rules of Order calls it a consent calendar) allows the board to approve all these items together without discussion or individual motions. Depending upon the organization, this can free up anywhere from a few minutes to a half hour for more substantial discussion..
