The Board welcomes public comments at its meetings. When citizens desire to address the Board, they are encouraged to contact either Linda Keyes, assistant to the superintendent, at email@example.com, or Patrick Mogge, director of community engagement and outreach, at Patrick.Mogge@d214.org or 847-718-7600 prior to the board meeting.
Regular In-Person Meetings
The format for in-person board of education meetings provides an opportunity for the public to address the Board:
- Citizens may address the Board on agenda or non-agenda items by signing in on the Public Comments sign-up sheet before the start of the meeting. Citizens are 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. The Board will thoughtfully consider all comments. If a written response is requested, the full address must be included on the sign-in sheet.
For the express purpose of protecting public health and in compliance with directives to avoid public gatherings, remote meetings will be conducted via an electronic video-conferencing application known as Zoom. Information regarding access to the audio recording of the Board of Education meeting is available on the District's website, www.d214.org.
- Public comments for agenda and non-agenda items will be accepted prior to the meeting via submission to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Submissions must be received by 10:00 a.m. on the day of the meeting, must include the sender's name and should follow the decorum standards for in-person public comment. During the public participation portion of the meeting, the Superintendent will read or summarize the emails. The emails will be shared in totality with the Board of Education and will be posted on the District’s website.
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 Scott Rowe or a designee will respond in a timely manner. If the resident would like a response from the board, he or she 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 Linda Keyes at email@example.com. Members of the public may also contact Board Members directly.
