Background
File Attachment:
Summary: Due to the ongoing pandemic, and DuPage County's recent move back to Phase 4 mitigations which limit the number of individuals in a space at 50, we continue to temporarily amend 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, February 24, 2021 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 only 35 members of the public will be allowed in the meeting room at a given time due to the number of Board Members and staff members also in the room. The school auditorium with a live-stream to the meeting will serve as an overflow area allowing an additional 50 community members. A public comment sign-up sheet will be available until 7:00 p.m. The Board Meeting is 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, February 24, 2021. All Board Members will receive and read this email. To be acknowledged, emails must be clear that they are intended for acknowledgment at the February 24, 2021 Board of Education Meeting. These emails will be acknowledged, but not read, and then documented in the Board Communications Log.
