Persons to be Heard Preamble 

Persons to be Heard is an opportunity for members of the public to speak to the Board about a topic that is not on the agenda.  As these are not agenda items, no board deliberation or action will occur in response.  Questions for clarification may be posed by Board members.  The Board may choose to refer items to the Superintendent (or designee) for further action.  The standard time limit for comments will be 3 minutes, unless otherwise stated by the Board President, with consent of the Board.  A timer is used, and a sound will indicate when time expires. 

All comments must be respectful and charges or complaints against specific employees are not permitted (per Alaska state statute).  Members of the public are referred to Board Policies 1312, 1312.1, 1312.2, 1312.3 (and associated Administrative Regulations), as well as to Board Bylaw 9323(a), for information about how to lodge complaints. Speakers are also asked to please state their full name for the record, prior to speaking.
