Board of Education Meetings

  • Updated Public Comment Procedures

    Due to the ongoing pandemic and continued interest in re-opening plans for schools, we are temporarily amending our public comment procedures for this August 12, 2020 meeting.

    In accordance with Board Policy 2.230, members of the public attending in person will have the opportunity to make public comments at the beginning of the meeting on agenda items with another opportunity later in the agenda for public comments on non-agenda items.

    Community members not attending this meeting in person, and who wish to provide comments to the Board of Education, can send an email to board@cusd200.org between the posting of this Agenda and 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.  All Board Members will receive and read this email.  For the August 12, 2020 Meeting, any emails received for this meeting must include in the subject line that the email is intended for acknowledgment at the August 12, 2020 Board of Education Meeting. These emails will be acknowledged, but not read in their entirety, during the meeting and placed in the Board Communications Log as a matter of public record.  This Log will document the name of the sender, the date received, topic and if Board/Staff acknowledgment was provided. 

    Any specific questions regarding District 200’s plans for the 2020-21 school year should be sent to communications@cusd200.org

    As with all comments, please be aware that it is the Board’s regular practice, to not directly discuss, ask questions or take action on public comments until the time has been taken to gather adequate information. The Board is there to listen. Lack of action or a direct response following public comments does not imply any lack of interest in what is being shared.

    Per Board Policy, we have allocated 30 minutes for public comments, and comments on any one subject may be limited to 20 minutes. The Board may shorten the time allocation for each person to less than 3 minutes to allow the maximum number of people the opportunity to speak.

    In addition, to preserve confidentiality, the Board and its President reserve the right to request that items relating to either personnel or students be provided to the Board privately or in writing for consideration in a future closed session, if necessary.

    The Board must protect the civility and decorum of the meeting. Please be respectful for the duties of the Board, our District Leadership Team, and the democratic process in your public comment:
    - Please include your name and whether you are a resident of the District in your email.
    - Please limit your email comments to a length that can be read in 3 minutes.
    - Please be factual and courteous, and do not include statements that are personally disrespectful or condescending to members of the Board or staff.

    Thank you for your understanding of the need for this temporary procedure for the August 12, 2020 meeting and for your interest in providing feedback to the Board of Education.
