Governance Procedures for Parents & Families
Requesting the Addition of an Item to the Board Agenda
Parents, teachers, and citizens are encouraged to attend and participate in Governance Board meetings. The Board invites all interested parties to address the Board during the scheduled public comment period which takes place during all Board meetings.
Public comment on specific agenda items will occur near the start of the meeting. Anyone wishing to address the Board should send an email to email@example.com.
Speakers will be granted three (3) minutes to address a single agenda item, or a total of five (5) minutes to address two or more agenda items. If 10 or more speakers wish to speak to the same agenda item, speaking time will be reduced to two (2) minutes per speaker. A group of guests collectively speaking on one subject will be limited to fifteen (15) minutes.
Anyone seeking to give a more extended presentation should contact the Director of Operations in writing at least seven (7) days in advance of the scheduled meeting or obtaining permission from the Board Chair.
The guidelines will be in effect for most Governance Board meetings, however the Board chair may on occasion seek consensus among Board members to revise or suspend the guidelines as circumstance warrant.
