Members of the public are welcome to observe any regular or specially scheduled board meeting or work session. On occasion the board may hold an executive session to cover specific types of confidential information; executive sessions are not open to the public, in accordance with Oregon law.
Attend in person: Board meetings and work sessions are held in person, at the 4J Education Center, 200 N. Monroe St., with the option of remote participation. The hybrid format gives all participants—board members, staff, speakers, audience members—the opportunity to join in virtually or in person.
Attend virtually: Board meetings and work sessions are open to the public via live broadcast on KRVM 1280-AM and 98.7 FM, audio streamed online, and video streamed via Zoom, pursuant to ORS 192.670. Committee meetings are video streamed via Zoom but are not on the radio or audio live streamed.
Each regular school board meeting normally has time set aside for public comment; this is listed on the agenda as “Items Raised by the Audience.” (Work sessions and special meetings normally do not include public comment.) Board members also read emails with written comments sent to email@example.com.
To request to speak to the board in the next public comment period in a board meeting, submit a request by 5 p.m. on the Monday before the meeting. Up to 10 community members will be scheduled to provide public comment at each meeting, with a 3-minute time limit per speaker. If more than 10 people request to speak, priority will be given to residents who did not provide public comment during the previous two meetings, then the selection of speakers will be determined randomly.
