APS School Board Meeting tonight

Anyone wishing to speak at the public forum during the regular meeting, link tonight must;

Arrive at 6400 Uptown Blvd before the end of the "recognitions" part of the agenda.  To be safe, sign up by 5:00.

They must agree to abide by APS School Board Policy, link, and the accompanying Procedural Directive, link.

They must agree;

  • if more than one of them wants to say essentially the same thing, they may be required under penalty of arrest and being banned from future meetings, to have one person express their views for them, with no additional time allotted, and
  • to direct their comments to board members and no one else, and,
  • that they may praise school board members and senior administrators by name but are prohibited from criticizing them by name, and
  • Respect the fact that (your) views and opinions may not be shared by all present - whatever that means, and
  • express no non-job related complaints against board members or the superintendent, and
  • focus on topics not on personnel, and
  • if you can't express yourself in the time provided, you may submit your presentation in writing and the board will take a look at it if they feel like it.
If you don't agree, you simply must show up and say so.
