Public Participation

Maintaining excellent public schools requires the cooperation and effort of everyone in the community. Members of the school board are aware that schools belong to the public, and they recognize the importance of keeping the community involved with and informed about the activities of the schools and the school board. Your school board members encourage you to stay informed about education issues and to attend board meetings regularly.

Richland Two Board of Trustees will return to holding in-person meetings on Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020. Due to the restrictions on public gatherings related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), there will be a limit to the number of people who can attend the meeting. Individuals attending the meeting must wear face masks.

The Board will return to the standard process for Public Participation. The Board sets aside a maximum of 30 minutes (15 minutes at the beginning and 15 minutes prior to the end of the public portion of the meeting). As each speaker is allotted three minutes, Public Participation will be limited to the first 10 people who sign up to speak (five during the first Public Participation and five during the second Public Participation). The sign-up to speak will open at 5 p.m. and close at 5:45 p.m. on the day of each board meeting.
