PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AT SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS
Due to the COVID-19 occupancy limits of the Public Meeting Room and in keeping with safety protocols established by the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission and recommended by the Sheriff’s Department, seating for School Board meetings is currently extremely limited; however, citizens wishing to attend in person may do so on a first-come, first-served basis as follows:
Any citizen wishing to attend a meeting in person will need to check in with the Sheriff’s Deputies upon arrival. Citizens will be given a number and — as seating is available — be seated in the order in which they checked in. All citizens will be required to wear a face covering at all times and pass a simple health screening before entering the building. Reservations will not be accepted, and citizens are not guaranteed admission. Deputies will begin issuing numbered tickets 30 minutes before the start of the first meeting of the day.
Public comment will be accepted during School Board business meetings. Measures are being put in place to accommodate public input while practicing social distancing, as recommended by health officials. Citizens requesting to speak before the Board will be given the opportunity to comment in person at the appropriate time.
