Public Comments at Board Meetings
The Board welcomes public comments at its meetings.
When citizens desire to address the Board, they are encouraged to contact either Rinn Knoepfle, assistant to the superintendent at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Jessica Thunberg, director of community engagement and outreach at email@example.com, or by phone at 847/718-7600 prior to the Board meeting. The format for regular agenda meetings provides two opportunities for the public to address the Board. Citizens may address the Board on non-agenda items after the Superintendent's Report. Citizens may be asked to limit their comments to three minutes. However, if several citizens would like to address the Board on the same topic, the Board president will limit the time to two minutes per person. Although comments may be made on almost any matter related to the operation of schools, comments will not be allowed concerning individual students or staff members.
Citizens also may comment on agenda items following the presentation of each item and prior to a Board vote on the item. Typically an item is placed on the agenda for discussion at one meeting and for action the next meeting. Rarely is an item moved from discussion to action in one meeting, but it can be done at the request of two Board members and with the consensus of the entire Board.
Although the Board welcomes public comments, normally it does not respond to citizens' concerns at its meetings. However, at the citizen's request and the Board's direction, Superintendent David Schuler or a designee will respond in a timely manner. If the resident would like a response from the Board, he may write Board members in care of the Administration Center, 2121 S. Goebbert Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60005, or e-mail them in care of Rinn Knoepfle at firstname.lastname@example.org or you may contact Board Members directly.
