Addressing the ISD 279 School Board at a school board meeting

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings of the school board will be conducted through videoconference until further notice. In order to continue offering a way for community members to address the board at a meeting, the school district is providing this online opportunity for individuals to share their perspectives with the school board in a public forum. 

Use this form to submit comments that you want to be read out loud at the next regular school board meeting held via videoconference. Comments (including your name) read at board meetings are accessible to all members of the public via livestream and archived video on the district website.

Please note the following parameters for submitting comments: 
  • Comments submitted to be read at the school board meeting must comply with the Guidelines for Addressing the Board, found at https://www.district279.org/contact-the-board#guidelines
  • Submissions that do not comply with those guidelines will not be read aloud but will be shared with board members after the meeting. 
  • Comments submitted using this form are limited to 3000 characters (including spaces, which will take approximately 3 minutes to read aloud). 
  • The chair will accept comments in the order submitted (using timestamps) within the 20 minutes of time allowed for this agenda item, subject to the discretion of the chair. 
  • Comments submitted after 12:00 p.m. on the date of the meeting will not be read aloud at the meeting but will be provided to board members for their information after the meeting.

Note: All forms submitted must comply with the Guidelines for Addressing the Board published on the district website. Forms with incomplete information in required fields (first name, last name, phone number, address) or forms that otherwise do not comply with the guidelines will not be read aloud at a meeting, but will be sent to board members by email after the meeting. Forms will be read in the order they are received, based on timestamped receipt of the form. In the event that the number of forms received would result in exceeding the 20 minutes allowed for the Audience Opportunity to Address the Board agenda item, forms that are not read aloud will be sent to board members after the meeting.
