Public Comment

  • The school board recognizes the value of participation by the public in deliberations and decisions on school district matters. At the same time, the school board recognizes the importance of conducting orderly and efficient proceedings, with an opportunity for expression of all participants' respective views.

    At the Monday, August 15 regular school board meeting, school board members approved the following process for receiving public input:

    Delegations and Individuals

    A 30-minute public comment period will be placed at the end of the regular school board meeting, after the Administrative Team and School Board Member reports, with the following guidelines:

    • Individuals wishing to address the full board must sign up and submit their comments (400 words or less) in writing to schoolboard@alexschools.org by 4:00pm on the Wednesday prior to the regular board meeting (see deadlines below). This will ensure time for board members to read the communication and for administration to look into any issues brought forward. This will provide context and the opportunity for board members to have a conversation from an informed perspective.
    • Each speaker who has signed up by the established deadline will have three (3) minutes to speak, with a maximum of 10 speakers.
    • Each speaker must meet policy guidelines regarding expectations on civil discourse. The audience will be held to these standards as well. If not, the board chair will use the gavel to restore order. If order cannot be restored, the meeting will be adjourned.
    • If incivility or disruption in general occurs during the Delegations and Individuals portion of the agenda, it will come under immediate review by the whole board and the board will determine next steps.
