How to Submit a Public Comment
For TTSD Board Meetings: Requests to provide public comment to the Board are submitted through email to Patty Roberts, no later than 4:00 PM on Board meeting day. Provide your Name, Community, and the reason/topic for your public comment. Public comments will be shared with the Board during the public comment portions of the meeting and are limited to three (3) minutes for your comment, and should be brief and concise. You may also submit written public comment, which will be read by the board and become part of the public record (including the meeting minutes), but it will not be read aloud at the meeting. Speakers may offer objective criticism of district operations or programs, but the Board will not hear complaints concerning specific district personnel. If the current public comment agenda item exceeds 30 minutes, time for the remainder of the public comments will be provided at the end of the meeting.
Public comments will follow: BoardPolicy BDDH – Public Comments at Board Meetings
All meetings of the Board, with the exception of executive sessions, will be open to the public. The Board invites community members of the district to attend Board meetings so that they may become acquainted with the program and operation of the schools. Members of the public are also encouraged to share their ideas and opinions with the Board when appropriate.
Comments Regarding Staff Members
Speakers may offer objective criticism of school operations and programs. The Board will not hear comments regarding any individual district staff member nor any person connected with the school system. Community members seeking to make comments regarding an individual are directed to the appropriate procedures in Board policy KL – Public Complaints for Board consideration of a legitimate complaint involving such individuals. The association contract governing the employee’s rights will be followed. A commendation involving a staff member should be sent to the superintendent, who will forward it to the employee, his/her supervisor and the Board.
