How to Participate in Tapestry Board Meetings
We would like to thank all of you who choose to attend Tapestry Board meetings! The Board greatly appreciates your investment in Tapestry.
Standing Board meetings are held the third Monday of every month at 7:00 pm.
Tapestry Board meetings are subject to the terms of the Open Meetings Act. Only items posted on the agenda can be discussed. Only Board members, including the School Principal, are permitted to speak at Board meetings unless there is an agenda item recognizing a particular speaker or during public comment.
There are some matters that will be held in executive session. These matters are limited to those allowed in the Open Meetings Act.
The board of Tapestry Public Charter School encourages participation from parents and other community stakeholders. To facilitate public input, the Board will allow for public comment in accordance with the procedures below.
- The opportunity to provide public comment is limited to parents, students, employees, or community residents, businesses, and organizations.
- Individuals wishing to speak should submit a request in writing to the Board Chair via email no later than 12:00 noon on the day of the Board Meeting. Such request shall include the individual’s name, relationship to the school, mailing address, and topic to be addressed.
- Speakers shall have a maximum of four (4) minutes each and are kindly requested to stop speaking promptly when their time is up.
- Speakers should be courteous and professional. Speakers may offer objective criticisms of school operations and programs, but the Board will not hear complaints about specific personnel or individuals connected with the school in a public session. Other channels provide a more appropriate forum for consideration and resolution of legitimate complaints involving individuals.
- Disruptive persons will be asked to leave the meeting room. The Board may terminate public comment that is profane or inappropriate.
- Speakers may not address confidential student or personnel matters, but may submit such concerns to Board Members in writing.
- Speakers are encouraged to provide the Board with a written copy of their comments and any other appropriate supporting documentation.
