Public Participation Policy for Board Meetings

You will need to compete the public participation form (also linked below) and submit it to the Office of the Superintendent at least seven days prior to the Board meeting in which you would like to present.

If your comments are not going to request an action by the Board of Education, you do not have to submit your request to the Office of the Superintendent.
