St. Pius X Board of Education
Open Forum Protocol
(more detailed information available in the school office)
The agenda for each regular Board of Education meeting will include an Open Forum so that interested parties may present their ideas, suggestions and concerns to the Board of Education.
Any individual wishing to address the Board during Open Forum should contact the Board President, the school principal, or the faith formation prior to the meeting to be placed on the agenda and should indicate the topic for discussion. Generally, Open Forum is limited to 15 minutes, and an individual presentation is limited to three to five minutes.
Each speaker must sign in prior to the presentation and indicate the topic on which the individual intends to speak. Each speaker is encouraged to have a written summary of comments to present to the Board President at the meeting.
The Board may discuss matters presented at Open Forum during the current or next regularly scheduled Board of Education meeting. Issues concerning individual staff members or students will be discussed in Executive session only.
If the Board takes any action on a matter presented at Open Forum, the President of the Board will provide a written response to the presenter. If the Board refers an issue for further investigation and recommendation, the President will also provide a written response to the presenter no later than ten working days following the Board’s final decision on the issue. Any response will be shared with all members of the Board and the administrator involved. A copy of the letter will be retained within the appropriate administrative office.
