The board encourages parents and other members of the community to share their opinions at meetings. Be sure that the issue you want to talk about is one the school board should address. Take complaints or issues concerning a specic school to the principal or to the School-Based Decision Making Council. The purpose of the board is to establish policies for the entire district, not to settle disputes that could be resolved through other channels. Register with the secretary of the board by calling (502) 485-3342, Mon. through Fri., between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Tell the secretary the topic you would like to address. Or you may register on-site at a meeting before it starts. When you're called to speak at a meeting, approach the microphone and say your name and the name of any organization or group of citizens you're representing. You'll have three minutes to address the board. If that isn't enough time, write a letter to the board members or call your representative at (502) 485-3566. Avoid repeating similar views of other speakers. In the interest of time, it's best to designate a single spokesperson to represent a group. You can show your numbers by asking those present to stand or simply by telling the board how many belong to your organization. Explain your concern, complaint, question or opinion. Give supporting examples. If you're reading from a script, provide copies for board members. Limit your comments to one item or issue. Be polite. Avoid name calling, nger pointing or demeaning language. End your remarks by telling the board members the action you want them to take.
