Public Participation Procedure
The purpose of a school board meeting is to consider and conduct the business of the school system. 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 Thursday prior to the board meeting. A form is available in the Superintendent’s office or on the system’s website.
2. If a need occurs and time does not permit the receipt of a written request, a call may be made to the Superintendent. Superintendent will then arrange the next available date to speak with the board.
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: At a minimum, persons should have contacted the Teacher and/or the Principal.
