Public Hearings

Public Hearings for Phase I

Every school recommended for Phase I closures was provided a one-hour public hearing with the Board of Education (BoE) prior to the vote focused exclusively on the recommendation for that particular school.

  • The order of speakers was dictated by the date and time of sign-up.
  • Each speaker was given 3 minutes. Time allowed for approximately 15 speakers.
  • The first 7 spots on the speaking list were reserved for current staff and families at the school recommended for closure.
  • Speakers had the opportunity to speak for a total of 3 minutes.
  • The total time limit of each public hearing session was 1 hour.
  • There were live interpreters available so that people could speak and listen in their native language.
  • We encouraged those who wish to speak to bring their comments in writing.
  • All written comments, regardless of whether they are shared verbally during the public comment session were shared with each BoE member.
  • This was an opportunity for the public to comment to the Board. During public comment the Board does not engage in discussion with, or respond to individuals.

We are grateful for the community's engagement and participation in the public hearings.
