Public Participation Information

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 the School Board.

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 they 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 require an auxiliary aid or service, please call (509) 354-7364. Try to make your request at least 48 hours before the event. We will do our best to accommodate requests needed in less than 48 hours.

Please email Tara Luedke with questions.
