Virtual Meeting Public Comment Guidelines
Procedures and Guidelines for Public Participation in Remote Special Board Meetings
On March 14, 2020, Governor Lamont signed Executive Order 7B which suspends the in-person open meeting requirements of the Freedom of Information Act (provided certain conditions are met) in an effort to mitigate the risk of transmitting COVID-19 through in-person public meetings and proceedings. The administration has taken steps necessary to ensure that the Board of Education will satisfy the conditions set forth in Executive Order 7B for holding Board meetings and proceedings remotely by video-conference until such time that in-person public meetings are safe to resume.
A Google form will be posted shortly before the start of the special meeting to allow for public comment. While the link will be publsihed, the Form will remain closed until the BOE chair calls for public comment to be opened. The full set of guidelines for public comment can be found in link below.
