Public Participation


    Individuals who wish to address the board should contact Legal Services at 972.600.5456. In addition, the individual will need to complete a Public Input Card, which is available at the board meetings. After completing the card, it can be given to any board member or district administrator so the individual can be recognized during the “Public Comment” section of the agenda. 

    Before addressing the Board, speakers should identify themselves by name, address and organization represented, if any, and remarks must be limited to three minutes. Public comments may not include charges against any employee or student of the District. 

    The Board is now meeting in person and has resumed its obligation to provide public access while adhering to the recommended local health and safety guidelines. Should you wish to address the Board during public comments, please contact our Legal Office at 972.600.5000 and make your appointment to speak at either the Board Work Session or the General Meeting.  You must submit your request by the end of business or 5:00 p.m. on the day of either meeting. The administration will ensure your accommodations in compliance with district health procedures including the observance of social distancing. All visitors must wear a mask and comply with the stated building health and safety protocols upon arrival at 6:15 p.m. for Board Work Session or 6:45 p.m. for the Board General Session. You will read your comments aloud during the public comments portion of the Board’s agenda.  Remember: You must identify yourself, provide your home address, for the comments to be considered, as well as state the item you are addressing.
