Public Participation at Board Meetings
Prior to the beginning of most meetings, the Board conducts "public comment" to hear from interested employees and citizens of
the school district. Speakers will have an allotted amount of time to address the board - from 1 to 5 minutes
as determined by the Chair. Speakers will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. However, the Chair may give
priority to those discussing Board agenda items being considered during the meeting. The Board requests that speakers maintain
appropriate decorum and that comments remain focused and respectful.
See Board Policy BCBI.
Any person who willfully violates the guidelines found in Board Policy BCBI may forfeit the remainder of their
speaking time and may face additional sanctions. Public commentary may be filmed, photographed, recorded and/or
edited by the District or other non-District media sources.
Note: Public board meetings are generally held at the Cobb Central Office at 514 Glover St. in Marietta.
