June 27 Public Meeting of the Board of Education & Speaker Request Sign Up

June 19, 2018

At the June 27 public meeting of the Board of Education, the agenda will include a recommendation to approve the proposed SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Policy. A recommendation to approve indicates that the Board has examined an item in question and is ready to make a decision as to whether or not to approve the proposed policy.

The Board has allotted a total of two hours of time at this meeting in case stakeholders and members of the public wish to provide a brief comment. In order to accommodate as many people as possible, the time allotted will be limited to a maximum of two minutes per person.

In order to prepare for the Board meeting this evening, the online speakers’ list sign-up process, which was open since Monday, June 25 at 4:30 P.M., has closed and all spaces on the speakers’ list have been assigned.  Those on the waitlist will be called upon in order of sign-up if the time allotted by the Board has not been exhausted when all those on the speakers list have spoken.    Anyone wishing to be added to the waitlist should see staff at the Speakers’ List table prior to the start of the Board meeting at 7:00 pm.

Anyone wishing to speak must be a resident of Richmond and will be required to provide proof of Richmond residency with photo identification at the beginning of the meeting. In order to provide a safe and respectful environment, messages on any objects and symbolic materials such as signs, banners or clothing must be in compliance with District code of conduct expectations.  Signs and banners must be hand-held and small enough that they do not block the view of others during the meeting.  The Richmond School District reserves the right to require participants to leave any item not consistent with these expectations outside the school.
