The purpose


School Board Meetings:  Public Participation Procedure

The purpose of a school board meeting is to consider and conduct the business of the school system. However, all meetings of the Hart County Board of Education are open to the public, and an opportunity for public comment is provided on each meeting agenda.

Any citizen wishing to address the Board may be placed on the agenda as follows:

1. A request to speak to the Board may be made in writing no later than the Tuesday prior to the board meeting.  Please send request to Superintendent Jerry Bell.

2. If a need occurs and time does not permit the receipt of a written request, a call may be made to the Superintendent anytime prior to the board meeting, and the Board chair will be informed of the request at the time the agenda for the meeting is approved.

Before requesting to address the Board, questions and concerns that involve instruction, discipline, transportation, and personnel may be solved by following a simple step-by-step process:





                        *Central Office Administrator


                        *Assistant Superintendent  




If several individuals wish to address the Board concerning the same matter, the Board chair may ask that a spokesperson for each side of an issue be selected to speak.

All public participation items should be kept to three minutes or less.
