    Public Comment:

    • Thirty minutes will be provided at the beginning of the meeting. If additional time is necessary, the board may consider reopening public comment after board business is completed or during the next meeting. See Policies 006 and 903.

    • Each individual will be limited to comments of two minutes as time permits for items related to board business that are not on the action items portion of the agenda. For action items, public comment will be held just prior to voting on that item as required by school code. This approach also allows for comments to be informed by the presentation and Board’s discussion of the respective item.
