Policy: 2.230 - Public Participation at Board of Education Meetings and Petitions to the Board
Background
File Attachment:
Summary: Due to the ongoing pandemic and Tier 3 mitigations that remain in place limiting the number of individuals in a space, we are again temporarily amending our public comment procedures for this meeting to allow comments to be made in person or emailed to the Board and acknowledged in the meeting at Hubble Middle School on Wednesday, January 13 at 7:00 p.m.

In accordance with Board Policy 2.230, members of the public wishing to offer public comment in person will have the opportunity to do so, but will only be allowed in the meeting room when they are called to provide their public comment. A sign-up sheet will be available at the entrance to the building until 7:00 p.m. Community members will remain in the waiting area until called into the meeting by the Board President. While community members will not be able to remain at the meeting in-person, the Board Meeting will then be available for viewing via live-stream on the District’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/communityunitschooldistrict200.

Per Board Policy, we will allocate 30 minutes for public comments, and comments on any one subject may be limited to 20 minutes. The Board may shorten the time allocation for each person to less than 3 minutes to allow the maximum number of people the opportunity to speak. To preserve confidentiality, the Board and its President request that items relating to either personnel or students be provided to the Board privately or in writing for consideration in a future closed session, if necessary.

Community members not attending this meeting in-person, and who wish to provide comments to the Board of Education, can send an email to board@cusd200.org between the posting of this agenda and 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 13, 2021. All Board Members will receive and read this email. To be acknowledged, emails must be clear that they are intended for acknowledgement at the January 13, 2021 Board of Education Meeting. These emails will be acknowledged, but not read, and then documented in the Board Communications Log.
