As noted on the agenda, the FY 2022-2023 General Fund Budget will be presented for First Reading. There will be a Public Hearing for the FY 2022-2023 General Fund Budget and Second Reading (Action Requested) at the board meeting on July 12 starting at 6:30 p.m. From July 1, 2022 until the Board approves the budget, the district will operate under the Continuing Resolution adopted by the Board on May 31, 2022.

District administration recommended to the Board to approve the Continuing Resolution due to the district's heavy dependence on state allocations. It is very difficult to complete the district's budget process without knowing the amount of state allocations that our district will receive, which cannot be determined until after the state budget is approved. Approximately 63% of revenues for Richland Two’s General Fund Budget come from state sources.

Public Participation is on the agenda for the June 28 meeting. Comments may be received from any Richland Two student, parent/legal guardian, resident, property owner, business owner, or Richland County elected official. All persons who wish to comment during Public Participation will fill out the appropriate form and sign-up sheet at the meeting before the public session of the meeting begins.

In order to allow for social distancing due to COVID-19, a safe distance between the public and the board, and to ensure adequate access for emergency personnel, capacity for the members of the public who wish to attend the meeting in-person is limited to 50. In case that capacity is reached and to provide members of the public the ability to watch the board meeting from the safety of their home, the meeting will also be streamed live at www.richland2.org/livestream.

As the lobby closes to the public at 5 p.m., citizens attending the board meeting will not be allowed to linger in the lobby. Citizens attending the board meeting will be directed to the meeting space upon arriving at R2i2. The public will not be allowed to protest or loiter in front of the main entrance. This is for safety reasons to allow emergency access into the building and for others who have other business to enter the building.

In an effort to maintain a safe environment, any person attending the meeting who is out of order, loud, disruptive, making inappropriate comments, and/or a safety concern will be asked to be seated or leave by a security officer. If the person does not comply, a Richland County Sheriff’s Deputy will escort them off the property.

No signage or other objects will be allowed into the facility that could either be a distraction or used as a weapon.
