    Public Comment
    Members of the public attending the meeting may provide comment during item I.F. Public comment on any open session item, closed session item, or any item that is within the Board’s jurisdiction, but not on the agenda, will be heard at that time. Where the Board has agendized a separate public hearing as part of the meeting, the public will have an opportunity to comment on the topic of the public hearing at that time. 

    The Board is committed to maintaining a respectful and productive environment that fosters a culture of civility where staff, the community and the Board feel safe to express themselves and are free from bullying, harassment, and threats. The Board welcomes your comments and requests that you express yourself accordingly.

    Members wishing to address the Board are allotted THREE minutes per speaker per item or per topic which is not on the agenda.  Should more than 20 people wish to address any one item or topic, the Board may elect to allot TWO minutes per speaking on that item/topic.  Please note that the speaking time cannot be delegated to another person.  Members should indicate the agenda item(s) or topic(s) on which they plan to speak when beginning their comments. Without taking action, Board members or District staff members may briefly respond to statements made or questions posed by the public about items not appearing on the agenda.

    Input Card
    Additionally, at any time during the meeting, members of the public may complete an “Input Card” to provide additional input on items addressed by the Board or within the Board’s jurisdiction.  After the meeting, comments will be shared with the Board.
