    Mission Statement

    Speaking at Board Meetings

    Any citizen may address the Board at any regular meeting during "Communications and Addresses to the Board." A reasonable period of time, as determined by the School Board, will be allocated at each regular meeting for citizens to present matters of concern. Individuals will have three minutes and organizations will have five minutes.
