Patrons: A scheduled time for public acknowledgment and participation has been placed on the agenda at GPS Board of Education general meetings. The Board desires to hear the viewpoints of citizens throughout the district. Individuals wishing to address the Board are requested to make arrangements with the Board President or the Superintendent prior to the meeting. Comments should be made to the Board and not to individuals in the audience and be related to school operations and programs. The Board will not hear personal complaints against any person connected with the school district. Comments must address topics that are on the agenda. If a citizen would like to add a topic to the school board agenda, arrangements must be made no later than one week prior to the meeting with discretion given to the Superintendent or Board Chairman. The Board reserves the right to eliminate or restrict the time allowed for public participation.
