Public Comment Protocols – High Transmission Rate

Due to the high COVID transmission rate in the County, the Board of Education meetings will be restricted for public attendance and the following protocols will be in effect:

  • The Public Comment section is an opportunity for residents to address the Board of Education.
  • There will be limited seating, six feet apart. 
  • Residents attending the meeting for the purpose of making a comment during the Public Comment portion of the meeting may be asked to remain in the lobby of the Gowana Middle School until that time. 
  • Residents should be prepared to wear a mask when in the library, location of the Board meeting.
  • All comments will be limited to 2 minutes. 
  • Comments related to a specific personnel matter or to a student will not be allowed to be made during the Public Comment. 
  • The Board will not address specific questions/comments, but ask for your name and address in the event follow-up is necessary. 
  • Because this meeting is being held with limited in-person attendance, if you are a district resident, please send questions/comments via BOE@shenschools.org.  All questions/comments come into the Office of Public Information and are shared with the Board and the Superintendent.
