Providing Public Testimony

  • When Public Testimony is Available
    Public testimony may be given either in-person or via Zoom at school board regular and special meetings. Testimony is not taken at work sessions.

    How to Sign Up
    Once the agenda is published, email the school board or call (452-2000, ext. 11400) the school board office by 4:00 p.m. the day of the meeting to sign-up for public testimony. Those who have signed-up in advance will be called upon first, and if time remains, anyone else who is in-person will be invited to testify until the one-hour time limit has been reached. Public testimony will be heard from citizens in the order in which they have signed up.

    Time Limits & Public Record
    Testimony is limited to three minutes per person, for a maximum of one-hour per action item. A person testifying shall state their full name, spelling their last name, and state their city of residence for the record.
