Board of Education

The public is invited to attend Board Meetings and provide input to the Board at the beginning of each meeting, and when related to an agenda item. In order to address the Board, persons must turn in a “Request to Address the Board” card to the Secretary of the Board PRIOR to the agenda item being introduced. Public participation is limited to three minutes per individual. If you are part of a large group, please appoint one spokesperson to be respectful of everyone’s time. The Board will not engage in a discussion, attempt to validate the truth or accuracy of any statement, nor provide an immediate response to the input. Rather, the Board can benefit from hearing the input and determine what follow-up action is required. This could include a future discussion, work session, or additional research, followed by an official response.

The Board of Education will be taking applications for volunteers to participate in one of the interview committees of the superintendent search process. The interview process will be conducted in English. Bilingual parents, students, or community members are encouraged to apply. If you wish to be considered, please submit your application by March 15, 2018 at 3:30 p.m.
