• In accordance with the Board of Education Public Comments Protocol Policy, pre-registration for public comments is required. Public comments during each monthly Board meeting will be limited to 20 participants. To register for public comments, please visit the pre-registration page, which will open one week prior to each Board meeting and will close one day before the Board meeting. For the Feb. 14 Board meeting, pre-registration will be open from 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7 until 1:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13. Anyone unable to pre-register online during that timeframe may visit the school system office at 2424 Northgate Drive to fill out a paper copy of the pre-registration form.

    Pre-registration closes 24 hours before each Board meeting to allow time for those who have pre-registered to be notified of the status of their request. If additional slots are available, members of the public will be able to register in person at the meeting venue to provide public comments on a first-come, first-served basis in the hour before the scheduled start time of the Board meeting.

    If more than 20 people wish to make comments, only the first 20 pre-registered will make comments during the Board meeting. Others may submit comments to comments@wcboe.org.
