Public Participation

  • Members of the public are welcome and invited to address the District 202 Board of Education during open public meetings. The Board of Education shall not permit the voicing of personal attacks against any district employee. Procedures for speaking during Regular Board Meetings are outlined below.

    The Board generally meets twice a month on the second and fourth Mondays and once a month during July and August. At these meetings, the public may sign up in advance to address the Board of Education on school-related topics. Speakers are called in the order in which they sign up to speak. Each individual is allowed a maximum of three minutes to address the Board. If there are more than 20 speakers, each speaker is given the pro rata portion of one hour. A written statement, provided to the School Board Secretary, is desirable. Written statements become part of the permanent record of the Board of Education.
