As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, upcoming Board Meetings will not be open to public comment unless legally required. In-person public attendance will be strongly discouraged in order to comply with current health guidelines on social gathering limits. Staff presentations at Board meetings will be presented by video, and the meetings will continue to be available for viewing on the APS website and broadcast on Comcast Cable Channel 70 and Verizon FIOS Channel 41.
For some specific meetings, such as public hearings on the budget, an opportunity for public comment is required by state code. For those meetings, the Board will allow public comment, but will be managing the scheduling of speakers by, for example, assigning time slots to speakers to encourage meeting attendance below the recommended of 10 or fewer attendees.
Agendas and background information for School Board meetings are posted on BoardDocs as they are available. Agendas are subject to change without notice and the public is encouraged to check the website in advance to confirm details or changes.
