    How to Attend & Participate

    Special Meetings: The School Board does not receive public comment during Special Meetings, but the open portion of Special Meetings are available for public observation. If you'd like to share comments or questions with the School Board, please email SchoolBoard@spokaneschools.org 

    Regular Meetings: If you are interested in publicly addressing the School Board during a Regular Meeting, please use the link above and attend either virtually or in person on the meeting date. 

    Citizens wishing to speak will wait for their name to be called and will be unmuted by the Zoom Moderator or called to the podium if attending in person. Citizens will state their name before beginning comments to the Board.

    Each person’s comments shall be limited to three minutes or less, as deemed appropriate by the President of the Board. The Board’s role will be to receive comments, and will only respond in two circumstances: 1) to clarify a speaker’s point that may have been unclear; and 2) to correct an apparent mistake of fact or policy once all the presenters are finished. No formal action will be taken on comments during this time. 

    If you sign up to provide public comment and wish to withdraw your request, please email TaraL@spokaneschools.org.
