How do I address the School Board?

There are several ways to contact the School Board; you may write a letter and send it to the district address or to the Board Secretary, Kathie Arnold, listed below.  You may attend a School Board meeting and speak during the citizens’ comments section.  Each meeting agenda has at least one section for citizens’ comments on any topic you wish.

The purpose of the citizens’ comments section of the school board agenda is for a citizen to state their opinion, and for the Board to hear the opinions and concerns of the taxpayers.  According to School Board Policy #903, “Each statement made by a participant shall be limited to five minutes duration.  No participant may speak more than once on the same topic, unless all others who which to speak on that topic have been heard, and the portion of the meeting during which participation of the public is invited to speak shall be limited to thirty minutes”.  The Board will listen to your comments but will not engage in a discussion at the Board meeting.  The Board President will direct the appropriate administrator to follow up with your concerns and questions after the board meeting.

The meeting dates, and individual Board member contact information, are listed under the School Board tab on the home page.
