Guidelines for public participation at board meetings

Board meetings are open to the public. They are designed to conduct board business rather than to serve as a public hearing, unless a public hearing is scheduled. To comment on an agenda item requires recognition by the board president. To comment on a topic not on the agenda, request recognition by the board president under agenda item Public Input. In the interest of time management, individual input is limited to three minutes; four minutes will be allowed for input on behalf of a group (three or more people present). Any person wishing to have his/her comments attached for the record to the official minutes may submit a prepared statement to the board secretary prior to the oral presentation.

Comments/concerns relative to the district personnel will not be heard in public; rather, they should be directed through the Parent Complaints Against District Employees policy, obtained through the superintendent's office at (425) 837-7002.
