RULES FOR PUBLIC COMMENT

As a reminder, here are the rules for public comment:

PUBLIC COMMENT
The board will announce the time for public comment during section III of the agenda, “Hearing of Persons Desiring to Address the Board as a Whole.” You will be asked to type your name and email address into the chat bar. The board president will call on each person in the order in which their name and email address has been received.  This information may also be used for follow-up communication if necessary.  

The board of directors will not otherwise engage in any communication using the chat function of this Zoom meeting.  

  1. You will be allowed 3 minutes to speak. The board president may terminate an individual's statement when the allotted time has passed and may interrupt a speaker to require the same standard of civility that the board imposes on itself. Please reference Board Policy 1400 for examples of uncivil comments

  2. In accordance with the Open Public Meetings Act, the board is not allowed to discuss items not on the agenda.

  3. When it is your time to address the board, please unmute your microphone.  When your three minutes is complete, please return your microphone setting to mute. 

  4. If concerns / comments are regarding an individual employee, we have a different process for which to bring that information to our board.  Any complaints or charges against an employee must be done in executive session unless the person complained against may request the meeting be opened to the public.

REGULAR BUSINESS BOARD MEETINGS

2021 - 2022

ABOUT THE BOARD

The school board consists of five members who are elected by voters in the Enumclaw school district. The members must live not only within the school district boundaries, but they must also live within the district boundaries they service. They serve a four year term. We also have two EHS student board members.  Learn more about our school board members.

Regular School Board meetings are generally held on the third Monday of each month, and each agenda is posted 48 hours prior to the meeting. 

Special Board Workshops/Work Study meetings are generally held on the first Monday of each month, and they provide an opportunity for the Board of Directors to visit each of our schools to learn how the strategic plan and district initiatives are applied to achieve the district mission of "Inspiring students to learn, lead and impact their community and the world."
