The New Glarus School District's Board of Education values the opportunity to receive input from our stakeholders. Any person attending the meeting may sign up to speak at the meeting.  Public input will be limited to three minutes to give everyone a chance to speak.  The Board members will not respond, but will take comments and viewpoints into consideration when they are discussing and deciding on agenda items.

If the topic you want to comment on is not on the Board agenda, Board members will listen, but not respond.  There is a Board Policy, Policy 9130, that outlines how to share requests, suggestions, and complaints.  It outlines that all requests, suggestions and complaints should start as close to the source as possible because that’s where they are most easily resolved, and then they move through the chain of command.  If you are unsure where to start, please contact a Principal or Program Director.  Eventually, some items do reach the Board level, but most are resolved at much lower levels.

Public Input Guidelines and Responsibilities

  • Comments that introduce complaints or concerns that are directed toward and that identify individual staff members or individual students are not permissible (such complaints or concerns should be channeled through the NGSD Complaint Procedure as outlined in Policy 9130.
  • The individual commenter retains all liability for his/her comments and conduct, whether verbal or in writing (i.e., the public input period does not offer any commenter any exemption from legal liability or from other lawful consequences that may result from the individual’s comments or conduct).
  • It is the responsibility of the commenter to review the complete guidelines and responsibilities as outlined in Policy 0167.3, Public Comment at Board Meetings.
  • If there is no Public Comment opportunity noticed on a meeting agenda, public comment will not be accepted for that meeting.
