How can I speak during a public forum at a board meeting during the COVID-related closures?

Public Forum during Board of Education meetings follows a modified procedure during COVID-related closures. Community members may sign up for a public forum by emailing their written comments to Board of Education Administrator Kathy Hanks (khanks@hcpss.org). Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, determined by the order in which emails are received. The first 10 emails received will be registered: five for the afternoon session and five for the evening session. Written comments should be kept to three minutes and will be read aloud during the meeting. The list of registrants and comments will be read in the order in which they are received and posted online in BoardDocs.

Registration begins three weeks prior to the date of the meeting. Emails to register must be received by close of business two days prior to the Board meeting. Registrants will receive a written response.

All persons are expected to exhibit civil behavior regarding their comments in accordance with Policy 1000 Civility.
