• Public Participation


    Members of the public are welcome and invited to address the Board during open public meetings. The Board of Education shall not permit the voicing of personal attacks against any district employee. Procedures for speaking during Board and Board Committee meetings are outlined below.

    *Note: Board Meetings during COVID-19

    The Governor through Executive Order on Monday March 17, 2020 suspended certain Open Meetings Act requirements allowing flexibility on issues of quorum and public comments during virtual meetings. In order to comply with the State of Emergency, the District 65 Board of Education will conduct virtual board and committee meetings during the duration of COVID-19 safety measures and Governor's orders. Information on meeting coverage and access will be posted prior to any virtual meetings. 


    At a Board Meeting public may sign up at the meeting to address the Board of Education on school-related topics. Speakers will be asked to identify the topic which they wish to address.

    Speakers wishing to address an agenda item at a Committee Meeting will be invited to speak following the discussion item.

    A written statement, provided to the School Board Secretary, is desirable. Written statements become part of the permanent record of the Board of Education.
