BOARD OF EDUCATION AGENDAS

Camden County Schools 

The superintendent shall prepare a tentative agenda for all meetings of the board. The final agenda for each meeting shall be approved by a majority of the members present at each meeting of the board.

Items of business may be suggested for inclusion on the tentative agenda by any board member, staff member, or citizen of the school district. The inclusion of items suggested by staff members, students, or citizens shall be at the discretion of the superintendent.

The agenda, together with supporting materials, shall be distributed to board members within sufficient time prior to the board meeting, if at all possible, to permit them to give items of business careful consideration. The tentative agenda and appropriate agenda materials shall also be made available prior to the meeting to the press, to representatives of the community, staff, and student organizations, and to others upon request.

Items of business not on the tentative agenda may be placed on the final agenda adopted for discussion and/or action at the same meeting upon the affirmative vote of the majority of the board members present.

The Board of Education has established a practice that permits citizens to address the Board on a variety of topics of general concern to the operation of our schools. We welcome visitors to board meetings and are interested in hearing from the residents of the district, taxpayers, parents and staff.

 

The Board does include a section on the agenda for public participation to hear public comments.

Please remember that regular board meetings are to conduct official business of the Board. They are not meetings with the public.

Anyone wishing to address the Board is asked to abide by a few simple rules:

 

- Each person must sign up by 10:00 am the day of the BOE Meeting using the link found online.  https://forms.gle/oveYzkA8K56Bvkep6  

- Each person is limited to five (5) minutes. 

- The Board Chair reserves the option of shortening the time of participants or rescheduling others for the next meeting.

- Each person must refrain from obscenity, profanity, threats of physical harm, or loud and boisterous behavior.

- Any stakeholder who needs to discuss a matter involving a specific employee or student must address the issue with a central office administrator, then the superintendent prior to the board meeting.

- If a group wishes to address the Board, select one person to address the Board on behalf of the group.

 

- Silence all cell phones.

 

The Board will not respond to public comments during the meeting but will consider any issue raised and ask the Superintendent to respond when appropriate either verbally or in writing.
