Can I attend Board Meetings? What if I want to speak at a meeting about a topic?
XCS Regular Board Meetings are open to the public, and anyone is welcome to attend. For those who wish to address the Board, a brief form must be filled out and submitted to the Treasurer prior to the start of the meetingThis simple card includes the applicant's full name and address, establishing them as a resident of the district, and forms will be available on arrival.

Note that all comments should be addressed directly to Board Members, and that comments should be limited to five (5) minutes. A maximum of 30 minutes (combined) may be allocated for all public comment. For more information and guidelines about speaking to the Board at a public meeting, view PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AT BOARD MEETINGS (po0169.1) on the BoardDocs platform.

It is important for members of the public to know that: 
  • Public participation is limited to that time in the agenda. Participants will not be invited to speak at any other time, so they must be in attendance and ready when they are called. 
  • Participants should begin by stating their full name and address that establishes them as a district resident.
  • They will have a maximum of five (5) minutes to address the board. 
  • Comments should be addressed to the board as a whole, not to individual members or the audience. 
  • Addressing the board is their chance to express an opinion or concern about a school matter. It is not a back-and-forth dialogue; BOE members will generally not respond directly to concerns at the time of the meeting. 
The fact that board members do not generally engage with speakers directly during public comment periods does not mean action will not be taken. Follow-up could entail referring the matter to staff because it is an operational concern that is not within the Board’s purview, discussing the concern after the public comment period has ended, or placing it on the agenda for a future meeting.
