Audience Participation

Audience Participation:  As a regular item on each meeting agenda, the Board will hear from citizens who desire to make comments to the Board.  At regular meetings, usually held on the 2nd Monday of each month, the Board will hear comments about both posted agenda items and non-agenda items.  At all other meetings of the Board, the Board will only hear comments about posted agenda items.

Any person wishing to comment must complete an Audience Participation Form and shall sign up no later than 15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting.  Forms will be available at the sign-in table prior to the Board meeting between 5:30 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.  See board policy BED Local.

Each participant shall be limited to three (3) minutes to make comments to the Board.  For effective meeting management or to accommodate large numbers of individuals wishing to address the Board, the presiding officer may make adjustments to the public comment time limit.  In no event will a speaker be given less than one minute to address the Board. 

Board Policy BED Local requires that complaints and concerns first be addressed administratively through the Board’s complaint process.  Complaint processes are set out in Board Policy DGBA Local for employee complaints; FNG Local for student and parent complaints; and GF Local for citizen complaints.
