Board welcomes citizen input The Board meeting agenda is prepared in advance of each monthly meeting. Anyone wishing to speak before the Board must inform the Superintendent’s Office in writing by noon on the Wednesday immediately prior to the Board meeting by filling out the Request Form on the district’s website. Individuals requesting to speak to the Board will receive a notification upon completing the electronic form. A maximum of 30 speaker slots will be available each month. An additional 15 requests will be accepted as alternates in case any of the first 30 cancel their request by 5 p.m. the day before the meeting. Alternates will be selected to fill canceled speaking slots in the order in which they signed up and will be notified before the meeting if they have been added to the agenda. If an individual needs assistance with the Request Form or has questions, he or she may email MySchoolBoard@gcpsk12.org.

Any Board member, staff member, or citizen may suggest items for the agenda. Each month’s meeting agenda is available online at noon on Monday the week of the Board meeting.
