Public Input in Board Meetings

Public Input During Virtual Board Meetings

If you have comments you wish to share with the Board, you are welcome to submit them in writing. All written comments submitted will be distributed to all members of the Board, as outlined in Policy 189 - Virtual Board Meetings in Emergency Situations. We appreciate your understanding during this unprecedented time.

Any comment you wish to have considered by the Board in conjunction with this meeting must be submitted in writing no later than 3:00 PM on the day of the meeting to Clara Kopplinger at (preferred) or mailed to 131 E. Washington Street, Suite 1A, Appleton, WI, 54911.

Public Input During In-Person Meetings

Copies of the Board Meeting Agenda are available on the BoardDocs website or at the Superintendent’s Office, the Friday before each meeting. The Agenda provides for Public Input (comments from citizens, students, staff, etc.) at the beginning of the meeting.

We welcome community participation and feedback! If you wish to comment during Community Input, please comply with the following guidelines:

  • Members of the public wishing to speak must complete and submit a registration form stating his/her name, address, and topic for comments prior to speaking. If a spokesperson is speaking on behalf of a group, he/she needs to indicate that on the registration form as well.
  • The District respectfully requests that speakers refrain from presenting comments at public meetings that introduce complaints or concerns that are directed toward and that identify individual staff members or individual students. As such personnel-related and student-related matters implicate a variety of rights that require careful attention, the District has established a variety of alternative procedures for appropriately addressing such complaints. If a speaker persists in presenting a complaint about an individual staff member’s conduct or an individual student’s conduct or performance, the District officials who are present at the meeting will not attempt to resolve or respond to the speaker’s complaint in that setting. Any person with such a complaint or concern may contact the Office of the Superintendent for information on the most appropriate means of raising or pursuing his/her complaint. Generally, such complaints or concerns should be channeled through the AASD Complaint Procedure (Policy 870 and 870-Rule).
  • The Board President or Chair shall recognize all speakers who have registered to speak and will share the Public Input Disclaimer (see Appendix 1). The Board President, Chair, or the Board by motion, may limit (in a viewpoint-neutral manner) the total time allotted for public input or the amount of time allotted to individual topics.

The Wisconsin Open Meeting Law requires that Board of Education members do not discuss topics or respond to questions that are not listed on the agenda.
