Public Participation at Board MeetingsThe Board of Education recognizes the value to school governance of public comment on educational issues and the importance of allowing members of the public to express themselves on school matters of community interest.

The Board is also committed to conducting its meetings in a productive and efficient manner that assures that the regular agenda of the Board is completed in a reasonable period of time and allows for a fair and adequate opportunity for input to be considered. Consequently, public participation at Board meetings will be governed by the following principles:

Any person or group wishing to place an item on the agenda should register their intent with the Superintendent no later than fourteen (14) business days prior to the meeting and include:

                       A.  name and address of the participant;

                       B.  group affiliation, if and when appropriate;

                       C.  topic to be addressed.

Such requests shall be subject to the approval of the Superintendent and the Board President.

In order to permit the fair and orderly expression of such comment, the Board shall provide a period for public participation at all public meetings of the Board and publish rules to govern such participation in Board meetings.

The presiding officer of each Board meeting at which public participation is permitted shall administer the rules of the Board for its conduct.

"Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be." I encourage all students parents and staff to find that someone or something to be your inspiration for a great year.  Good Luck and Go Redmen!"

Mrs. Heidi Kauffman 

"The BIG Secret in life is that there is no BIG Secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you are willing to work" - Oprah Winfrey.  I believe every student has the ability to be successful at any goal they set for themselves, but they have to be willing to work and not be afraid to ask for help when they need it.
Go Redmen!
