June 9 - Special session for comment on CPAC bond and mill levy recommendations
June 16 - New school applicants, facility placements and general remarks

The Board of Education encourages the involvement of community members in the public school system. One means for members of the public to assist the Board is by providing public comment to the Board on issues affecting the school system, especially issues directly affecting student achievement, budget policy, and those matters currently under consideration by the Board.

To provide a speaking opportunity for community members who are subject of the action to be taken by the Board in June, the Board will organize the June special public comment sessions as follows:
• For each broad topic of public comments, a maximum of two hours will be allotted.
• If the number of requests for speaking time for a topic is greater than the two-hour maximum, then time will be allotted based on the following:
o Direct impact to speaker of a Board decision this month
o Order of contact to Board of Education office to request speaking time (i.e., first come, first served)

In June, the Board of Education will vote on new school applicants and facility placements and will also consider voting on 2016 Bond and Mill Levy Override recommendations by the Community Planning and Advisory Committee (CPAC).

The focus for the June 9 public comment session will be the CPAC bond and mill levy recommendations.

General public comments and public comments regarding new school applicants and facility placements will be held on June 16. Public comments on June 16 will be organized as follows for new school applicants:
1. A maximum of 10 minutes will be provided for each school proposal’s supporting comments. No individual speaker may speak for more than 3 minutes.
2. If time allows within the two-hour maximum, after each school’s supporting comments, then other community members may speak on the topic of new school applicants until the two-hour time limit is reached.

General public comments may be limited per direction of the Board President.

In order to address the Board, community members must sign up to speak. Please call the Board Office at 720-423-3210 by 5:00 p.m. the day before the public comment session. A list of speakers will be posted on BoardDocs the day of the public comment session.
