  • When the Board Receives Correspondence

  • To ensure that your correspondence is addressed, your email will be forwarded to the Board and senior staff immediately. Historically, all correspondence received from the public will be discussed at an Agenda Setting meeting where a decision is made to include it in either the public or in-camera (closed) Board agenda package. *Please note, if your correspondence includes student or district employee information, it will be added to the in-camera agenda package. Further, your name and correspondence content will be included in the public record verbatim (i.e. made available online), however, we will respect your privacy and will remove your contact information that you included in your original correspondence.

    Once received at a Board meeting, the Board of Education determines if the correspondence should be: Referred to staff for response; Board Chair response; received and filed as information; or referred to the Education or Business Committee for further discussion. The Board will strive to respond or answer your questions once it is determined how it will proceed. As per Board policy, Regular Board meetings are typically held on the fourth Wednesday of every month, from September to June.

    If your correspondence is pertaining to an upcoming event, please keep these procedures in mind and allow sufficient time for response.
