Public Comment and Testimony Guidelines

Public Comment and Testimony Guidelines

Time is allocated at each Business Meeting of the Board of Education for members of the public to address the Board on issues of concern. While not required, we ask that you call the Superintendent’s Office in advance of the meeting. This allows us to allocate additional time for public comments when necessary.

On the day of the meeting, you will be asked to sign the sheet on the podium inside the entrance door. If you have hand-outs or written testimony, please bring six (6) copies and give them to the Board assistant upon your arrival. She will distribute them to Board members. When you are called to speak, please state your name for the record and limit your comments to three (3) minutes. If you officially represent an organization, you may speak for five (5) minutes.

To protect individual confidentiality, we ask you not to mention specific students or staff members in your remarks.

Please understand that while the Board of Education values your comments and concerns, it cannot respond to your questions or enter into a discussion with you during a business meeting. The Board will follow-up on the issues you raise, and you will receive a response to your questions.

The Board of Education welcomes written comments at any time. Please address your comments to:

Board of Education President
Calvert County Public Schools
1305 Dares Beach Road
Prince Frederick, Maryland 20678

For more information, please call 410-535-7220.
