The superintendent shall prepare a tentative agenda for all meetings of the board. The final agenda for each meeting shall be approved by a majority of the members present at each meeting of the board.
Items of business may be suggested for inclusion on the tentative agenda by any board member, staff member, or citizen of the school district. The inclusion of items suggested by staff members, students, or citizens shall be at the discretion of the superintendent.
The agenda, together with supporting materials, shall be distributed to board members within sufficient time prior to the board meeting, if at all possible, to permit them to give items of business careful consideration. The tentative agenda and appropriate agenda materials shall also be made available prior to the meeting to the press, to representatives of the community, staff, and student organizations, and to others upon request.
Items of business not on the tentative agenda may be placed on the final agenda adopted for discussion and/or action at the same meeting upon the affirmative vote of the majority of the board members present.
The Board of Education has established a practice that permits citizens to address the board on a variety of topics of general concern to the operation of our schools. We welcome visitors to board meetings and are interested in hearing from the taxpayers and patrons of our school system. We have a few simple rules for public comment; each person wishing to address the board must sign this roster; each person is limited to five (5) minutes; we request that a citizen refrain from attacking personally any employee of the school system; any citizen who has a specific complaint involving an employee must first address the issue with the superintendent and, if not resolved; then may speak with the board. However, certain matters involving personnel and students must be heard in closed session; the superintendent will inform you whether your complaint is one that should be referred to an executive session with the board. By signing the roster, participants are agreeing to abide by these rules.
