Public Comment

The Board of Trustees encourages all citizens of the District to express their ideas and concerns. Any complaint about the District, including instruction, discipline, District personnel policy, procedure or curriculum, should be referred through proper administrative channels before it is presented to the Board.

 

All complaints should be resolved through proper channels in the following order:

  1. Teacher or Staff

  2. Principal or Supervisor

  3. Director or Administrator

  4. Superintendent

  5. Board of Trustees

 

If these channels have been exhausted and a patron still wishes to address the Board a "Request to Address the Board" (4105F)  must be filled out prior to the board meeting. Completed forms may be submitted electronically through this website, delivered to the Wallace School District Office at 501 Western Ave., Silverton, ID 83867 or emailed to the District Clerk at bconley@wsd393.org.

Written materials for Board Members must be submitted to the Board Clerk to include the name, address, and telephone number of the person submitting it. A copy of the materials will be forwarded to Board Members if received by noon the Friday preceding the Board meeting. Please do not send directly to Board Members.

The time allotted for public comment will not exceed 15 minutes unless specifically requested. Public participation will be limited to the time allotted on the agenda. Each speaker will be limited to 2-3 minutes and will only cover matters scheduled on the agenda. Should a large number of members of the public wish to speak on the same issue or topic, they are encouraged to select one or more representatives to summarize their position. The Board may decline to hear repetitive comments if the individual has previously addressed the Board on the same subject within the past two months.

Because of the diversity of issues members of the Board will not respond to public comment. Instead, issues may be recorded and referred to the proper staff person for follow-up. No action will be taken by the board without fully reviewing all available information.
