    UPDATE: On April 14, 2020, the Board of Education voted to amend their Bylaws (Policy 2300) to alter the rules for the speakers’ portion of Board, Committee, and Special meeting agendas. This provision in the Bylaws will remain in place for the duration of time that schools remain closed due to the Covid-19 crisis.

    The Board’s amendment now allows for persons wishing to speak to the Board to do so via the Zoom Video Conference webinar format during the Speakers portion of the agenda. In addition, this amendment will limit the number of speakers to thirty (30), on a first come, first served basis, in the order that is required by the current policy [i.e. Students, Parents, Community, and Staff). The amendment also limits the time for persons to speak to two (2) minutes.

    Anyone wishing to sign-up to speak via Zoom must send an email to Boardofeducation@rcsdk12.org by noon on the day of the meeting and state that they would like to speak. The following information must be included: Name, Affiliation, and Telephone Number. Once the first thirty (30) Zoom speakers have been identified, an email will be sent to those persons with the Zoom link for that evening’s meeting.

    Written comments are still accepted and anyone wishing to comment via this means may do so by sending comments to Boardofeducation@rcsdk12.org. The comments will be forwarded to Board Members, posted to the website, and accepted into the public record, however these will no longer be read verbally into the Public Record.

    No anonymous comments will be read into the public record.

     For more information, you may leave a message for the Board of Education at 585-262-8525 and a representative will return your call.
