    How to Attend & Participate

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

    Regular Meetings: Should you be interested in publicly addressing the School Board during a Regular Meeting, please watch for a link the day of the meeting to be available on the meeting dates listed above.

    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 and address before beginning comments to the Board.

    Each person’s comments shall be limited to five 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.
