Public Participation Policy for Board Meetings

If your participation may require Board action or you would like to request Board action during your presentation please refer to Board Policy BDDH for requirements (see below).

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. You will have the opportunity to sign-in for "Public Participation" once you arrive to the board meeting chamber by completing and submitting the form below.

Monthly Student Liaison Reports

Each month, our Student Achievement Liaison will post updated, published studies and reports related to student achievement. You can review each of the postings on our Student Liaison page.
