During each Regular School Board Meeting, the agenda includes an item entitled "Public Comment," (formally known as Delegations). This is an opportunity for the public to comment on items pertaining to the agenda. Speakers are required to fill out a registration card and will have no more than four minutes to speak on the agenda topic. The Public Comment Section of the meeting shall last no longer than 30 minutes.
The agenda also includes a section known as the "Consent Agenda." The Board considers Consent Agenda items to be routine and background information has been provided prior to the meeting.
Towards the end of each meeting, School Board members are given an opportunity to share relevant information from partnerships, assigned meetings or community events. This portion of the meeting is called "Board Communication."
Public Engagement Opportunities
To engage district residents on education-related topics in a setting outside the formal structure of a School Board meeting, a number of public engagement opportunities will be scheduled. The public will be asked to share opinions and respond to questions from the board. The locations, dates and times for public engagement opportunities will be posted on the Web site, www.isd622.org, as soon as they become available.
Study sessions are informal discussion style meetings and no official School Board action is taken. Workshop meetings are open to the public and minutes are posted on the Web. Study Session dates are also posted. To request an agenda, contact the Superintendent's Office at 651-748-7411.
