REGULAR BOARD MEETING DATE/TIME: May 24, 2021, at 6 p.m.
Though providing an opportunity for public comment during school board meetings is not a requirement, the Westerville City School District (WCSD) Board of Education believes it is an important part of its engagement with and accountability to the community. In response to public gathering restrictions now in place due to the coronavirus, and in the spirit of maintaining an opportunity for our public to participate in these virtual school board meetings, we are offering interested persons an opportunity to submit written public comment.
During a typical WCSD Board of Education meeting, there are two opportunities for individuals to address the board. While functioning under this virtual meeting environment and adhering to the state's mass gathering ban, the opportunity to submit written public comment will typically open just prior to the start of each meeting and close as each public comment section is reached on the agenda. Any modifications to this process will be announced on this page.
When submitting your written comments through the provided form(s), we ask you to please keep your comments professional, avoid the use of inappropriate language, and refrain from identifying individuals in the event of a complaint. The Board President and other members of the Board reserve the right to ensure that any comments shared during the meeting are compliant with this request. You may use the following links to submit written public comments for the Board's consideration:
All comments submitted become a matter of public record and are subject to release under Ohio law and the federal Freedom of Information Act. As with in-person public comments made during a traditional school board meeting, Board members reserve the right to withhold comment in order to conduct any research necessary and determine the appropriate individual to follow up with the speaker at a later time. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
