    Community Comment

    The Centennial School Board believes in and is committed to the principle that there should be resident participation at all School Board meetings.  The following guidelines govern resident participation:

    Opportunities for community comment are provided at the beginning and end of each meeting.  Residents are encouraged to speak briefly concerning any matter under discussion by the Board during the course of the meeting, upon recognition by the Board President.The privilege to address the Board does not extend to non-residents.  If non-residents wish to bring an issue to the attention of the Board, they should write a letter to the President expressing their concern.  This letter will be distributed to all Board members in a timely fashion.

    Residents must complete a green card and present it to a Board member prior to the start of  the meeting. 
    Speakers shall identify themselves by stating their name and address.
    Presentation is limited to approximately two minutes per person.  Should any resident require more time, contact should be made with the Superintendent in advance of the meeting.
