II. Public Comment
Rationale

Granby community engagement and participation during BOE public meetings is encouraged and welcomed. The Public Comment segment of the meeting agenda is set aside for this purpose.  During this segment, Board members and administration are encouraged to engage with the intent to clarify and understand comments being offered. Board feedback, however, will be limited until a fuller understanding of the topic is obtained. As a result, and in an effort to proceed in a timely manner, follow-up discussion may occur at a subsequent meeting as a dedicated agenda item or outside of a meeting setting altogether.  In the interest of fairness to individuals in a public forum and to allow Board neutrality, it is strongly requested that all references to community members, students or district personnel be done anonymously. Procedurally, public remarks will be limited to approximately 5 minutes and individuals will be asked to identify themselves.
