AGENDA     

  1. Call meeting to order and determination of a quorum
     
  2. Public Forum

In accordance with Policy 213 - Public Participation in Board Meetings the board recognizes the importance of citizen participation in school district matters.  In order to assure citizens are heard and board meetings are conducted efficiently and in an organized manner, the board has set aside this specific time for public comment.  

Citizens wishing to address the board during public comment must notify the board secretary no later than 2 hours prior to the board meeting. The board president will recognize these individuals to make their comments at the appropriate time during public comment.  Citizens wishing to present petitions to the board may also do so at this time.  The board however, will only receive the petitions and not act upon them or their contents.  

Normally, speakers will be limited to five minutes per individual or such time limit to not exceed 45 minutes total public participation time.  However, the board president may modify this time limit, if deemed appropriate or necessary.  Public comment is a time set aside for community input, but the board will not discuss or take any action on any matter during public comment.  Only individuals recognized by the board president will be allowed to speak.  Comments by others are out of order.  If disruptive, the individual causing disruption may be asked to leave the board meeting.
