Guidelines for Public Comment During School Board Meetings

The Board reviews letters and emails sent to the School Board via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via postal mail to: Riverhead Charter School, Attn: Board of Trustees, 3685 Middle Country Road, Calverton, NY 11933.
TIME – Each speaker may speak for up to three minutes. A timer is visible to speakers and speakers should conclude their remarks when the buzzer sounds. It is the policy of the present Board to provide an opportunity for public comments as time permits. The Board allows a maximum of 30 minutes for Public Comment during the portion of the meeting which is dedicated to Public Commentary. Delegations of more than five persons should appoint one spokesperson to present their views before the Board. If fewer than 10 individuals apply to address the Board, still only three minutes per speaker will be allotted. If there are a large number of speakers, the Board reserves the right to limit the total time for comment and/or may reduce the time allotted for each speaker.
TOPICS – Speakers may address an item on a School Board agenda or may address an item not on the agenda during a portion of the meeting that is dedicated to public commentary. All comments should address a matter related to Riverhead Charter School. The School Board will not hear public comment that involves a complaint about an individual staff member, a personnel action, a student disciplinary matter, a complaint about an individual student, or pending litigation. The Board respectfully requests that individuals follow Board policy if they have a complaint about any matter. The RCS Complaint policy is listed below.
