Special Board Meetings
Special Board meetings are public meetings called for a specific purpose
From time to time, the Board will meet in executive session, often before or after a business meeting. These sessions are not open to the public. They are limited to specific topics such as personnel matters or acquisition of real estate.
The Pasco School Board recognizes the value of public input on educational issues. For that reason, at each School Board meeting, there is an agenda item titled “Audience Comments,” during which school-related associations and members of the public are invited to give testimony. Individual comments must be less than 2 minutes in duration.
Community members who wish to make a public comment must complete the sign-in sheet upon arrival. While the School Board invites members of the public to share comments, the School Board will not respond to questions during the business meeting. The Superintendent or a designee will follow-up with you after the meeting if action is needed. Instead of speaking at a meeting, you may also send an email to the Board.
Community members may also make live public comments virtually by joining the Zoom link. Zoom attendees will be asked to raise their digital hand in Zoom if they would like to make a comment. When called on, the commenter will be unmuted for 2 minutes, then muted when their time is up.
