Attending a Board of Education Meeting

The Fenton Board of Education members are pleased to have residents at their meetings.  The board encourages citizen comments and interest in our educational community.  Individuals wishing to address the Board should first complete a Request Form.  The forms are placed in the lobby of the Administration Building prior to each meeting.  During the Public Communications segment of the meeting, individuals will be recognized by the Board president or designee and asked to identify themselves.  Individuals may then proceed with comments which may be limited to five minutes.  The Board president or designee is responsible for the orderly conduct of the meeting and will rule on such matters as to the appropriateness of the subject being presented.

Any person has the right to present a complaint concerning District personnel, educational programs, instructional materials or the operations of the district.  Whenever a complaint is made directly to the board as a whole or to a Board member as an individual the hearing of the complaint shall be held in accordance with Board Policy (9450), of the Open Meetings Act and the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act (FERPA).  Presenters should refrain from using specific names of District Personnel when addressing the Board.
