In addition, the Board may schedule special hearings to receive additional public testimony, for topics of special public interest or as required by law.
Written and oral comment will be accepted on items before the Board. Individuals wishing to be heard by the Board shall comply with the rules as described by Board Procedure 1430P. Individuals will be assigned to speak as described by Board Procedure 1430P.
Speakers requiring accommodations, including interpretation services, should contact the Office of the Superintendent by noon the day before the meeting to enable the district to provide accommodations.
