Update to Location of Oct. 26 School Board Meeting and Guidelines for Public Comments

Updated Location for October 26 Board Meeting

Public participation is valued in Roseville Area Schools. We welcome community input and encourage students, families, staff and community members to share information and concerns with us. You can communicate with school board members by contacting individual board members, sending an email that reaches all members, or speaking at a school board meeting.

The location of the 6:30 p.m. October 26 school board meeting has been changed to the Roseville Area Middle School (RAMS) auditorium, 15 County Road B-2 East, Little Canada, MN 55117.

Guidelines for Public Comments at Board Meetings

The following guidelines are for individuals seeking to speak during the public comment portion of the school board meeting:

  1. Sign up on the sheet that is provided at least 15 minutes prior to each meeting. Please provide your name, address, school or organization represented, and a brief summary of the intended statement or question(s) you would like answered. Those whose names and addresses are on the sign-up sheet when the meeting is called to order will have an opportunity to speak.
  2. The school board is interested in your comments and will listen carefully, but it will not respond or debate issues during this time. If you would like the school board or the administration to respond, please be sure to include your question(s) on the sign-up sheet. You will receive a response within two weeks of the meeting. Copies will also be sent to the entire school board.
  3. Speakers are given up to three minutes (or 10 minutes per delegation) to address the school board, unless the board chair grants an exception. When the board chair proceeds with the meeting, audience comments are no longer in order. However, board members may call on staff for information to assist the board in its deliberations.
  4. Personal attacks on students, staff members, or board members will not be allowed. Due to data privacy laws, referring to an individual by name will be ruled out of order. The use of vulgar or profane language will also be ruled out of order. Speakers unwilling to abide by the rules or time constraints will be asked to stop.
