The public is encouraged to attend any public committee or school board meeting. The public is asked to sign in at the meeting so an accurate record can be kept for the board minutes.
School Board meetings are meetings of the Governing Board IN public, but are not meetings WITH the public. The District and Board seek to ensure that the public may exercise its right to be heard, surface issues, and follow resolution of such issues.
Members of the public are asked to speak only when recognized by the Board President.
As per district policy #006, a member of the public present at a Board meeting may address the Board in accordance with law and Board policy and procedures. The maximum time allowed for public comment by an individual is three (3) minutes, unless extended time is allowed by the Board President.
Meetings will be live-streamed when possible on the Olympian Way YouTube Channel
In order to serve students, parents, residents and the district best, items concerning individual student(s) and/or issue(s) should be referred to the first appropriate level as follows:
1st level – Teacher
2nd Level – School Principal
3rd Level – Superintendent
4th Level – School Board
This process should save you time and provide the highest quality of resolution. We all need to communicate in a manner which demonstrates mutual respect for student, parent, community, and school district needs, roles, and responsibilities. Effective communication and accountability must occur at all levels of successful organizations.
