Public Comment at Board Meetings

  • Members of the public have two opportunities to comment at each regular action meeting of the Fayette County Board of Education. Attendees may sign up electronically at 450 Park Place before the meeting starts. Your participation is welcomed. Note: No one is allowed to disparage or criticize another individual. Grievances are processed through the school district's complaint procedure, which affords the subject the opportunity for response and due process.


    At the beginning of the meeting, the public may speak about items on the agenda. The board chair will determine the amount of time for each speaker based on a variety of factors, including the number of speakers and the length of the meeting. A speaker should state their name, address, whether they are an employee of the school district, and the topic of concern. People are encouraged to share their ideas with the board in writing. Also, anyone may submit proposed agenda items in writing at least 10 calendar days before the action meeting.

    Once the discussion or action portion of the meeting starts, only the board members, the superintendent, and staff may speak as they conduct business. On occasion, the board might want to hear from the public or an advisory committee about a specific item. If so, the board may open up its discussion to include public comment. 

    After the meeting's business, people who already signed up are invited to address the board about items that were not on the night's agenda. The chair will determine the amount of time for each speaker, depending on the lateness of the hour and the number of speakers.
