Share public comments remotely

  • Only individuals who have completed this online public comment form will be called on to speak.
  • Public comments are limited to one comment per person.
  • Speakers are given three minutes to speak and will be notified when their three minutes are up. There will be no prior warning.
  • The name on the online comment form must match the login name of the Zoom attendee.
  • If you plan to attend by phone, you must list the phone number you intend to call in from on the form.

  • In order to make a comment, you will need to “raise” your hand. You can find this feature at the bottom center of the webinar screen.
  • Those who have submitted a form will individually be promoted to panelist. For those on the Zoom, a panelist box will appear on your screen saying, “The host would like to promote you to panelist…” You will need to click on the button that says, “Join as panelist...” Please be aware that this process takes several seconds once you select “Join.”
  • Unmute your audio and start your video. After you are done speaking, your role will change back to “attendee.”

  • Individuals calling in do not have the “raise” hand feature and will be identified by the telephone number listed on the form. 
  • The meeting host will state your name and the speak option will be enabled for you. You will be audibly prompted to enter *6 on your phone. After you have commented, the option to speak will be disabled.

Please note that audience participation is not intended as a forum for public debate and comments should be relevant to the school district and its educational program. Board members do not normally respond to comments made during a board meeting. Questions raised may be referred to the superintendent or other district staff for follow-up. Please attempt to resolve any concerns by communicating directly with the staff member, principal/administrator, or superintendent prior to bringing them to the school board.

Modifications are available for individuals with disabilities who wish to participate in school board meetings. Please contact the Superintendent’s Office at 360-662-1615 or [email protected] to learn more.
