Public Comment and Testimony Guidelines

The Board of Education permits the public to address the Board on issues of concern. The number of commenters will be limited to 20 speakers. Those who wish to address the Board during the Open Forum are asked to sign in upon arrival. When you are called to speak, please state your name for the record and limit your comments to three (3) minutes. Persons on the sign-up sheet may not convey, transfer, or relinquish any part of their speaking time to another person or group.

If you have hand-outs or written testimony, please bring nine (9) copies and give them to staff upon arrival. Staff will distribute to Board Members.

To protect individual confidentiality, please do not mention specific students or staff members in your remarks. All comments are to be made in a civil manner. Anyone not following these guidelines will be asked to stop speaking and may forfeit their right to speak at future Board meetings.

Please understand that while the Board of Education values your comments and concerns, this is a business meeting and the Board cannot respond to your questions or enter into a discussion with you during the meeting. Calvert County Public Schools will respond to the issues you raise so be sure to provide your contact information when you sign in.

Written comments are welcome at any time. Please email your comments to or mail to:
