Citizens may request to speak before the Board of Trustees in open forum by registering with the Superintendent's administrative assistant before the meeting begins. This may be done by phone or in person at the meeting site.
Those addressing the Board are asked to adhere to a five-minute limit. The speaker should identify his or her name and residential address, group affiliation (if any), and make a brief presentation with an identified solution if one is sought. Remarks should be addressed to the Board as a whole.
Groups of more than five people who wish to speak on one topic are asked to appoint a spokesperson to present the groups' views to the Board. This open forum portion of the Board meeting will generally be 30 minutes in length. In instances of great public interest, the Board may decide to expand this time to provide for more input.
Specific factual information or recitation of existing policy may be furnished in response to inquiries, but the Board shall not deliberate or decide regarding any subject that is not included on the agenda posted with notice of the meeting.
Complaints and concerns for which other resolution channels are provided shall be directed through those channels. The presiding officer or designee shall determine whether a person who wishes to address the Board has attempted to solve a matter administratively. If not, the person shall be directed to the appropriate policy to seek resolution before bringing the matter to the Board at a subsequent meeting.
Individuals who wish to be placed on the agenda to present specific concerns or suggestions to the Board during regular or special meetings must direct the request to the Office of the Superintendent no later than noon on the Tuesday prior to the specified meeting.
If you have other questions or would like more information concerning Board meetings or procedures, please contact either the Office of Communication or the Superintendent's Office at 469.633.6000.
The Board shall not tolerate disruption of the meeting by members of the audience. If, after at least one warning from the presiding officer, any person continues to disrupt the meeting by his or her words or actions, the presiding officer shall request assistance from law enforcement officials to have the person removed from the meeting.
Thank you for your interest and involvement in education and in the Frisco ISD.
