School Board Members
School Board Members are elected to four year terms. For more information on becoming a school board member please contact the District Office.
How can I speak at a School Board meeting?
According to Board Policy No. 213, citizens wishing to address the board during public comment must notify the board secretary prior to the board meeting. The board president will recognize these individuals to make their comments at the appropriate time during public comment. Citizens wishing to present petitions to the board may also do so at this time. The board however, will only receive the petitions and not act upon them or their contents.
The board has the discretion to limit the amount of time set aside for public participation. Normally, speakers will be limited to 5 minutes with a total allotted time for public participation of 30 minutes. Public comment is a time set aside for community input, but the board will not discuss or take any action on any matter during public comment.
How can I petition to have an agenda item on the School Board meeting?
Individuals who wish for an item to be placed on the board agenda may submit a valid petition to the board. For a petition to be valid, it must be signed by at least 500 eligible electors of the district, or ten percent of the individuals who voted in the last school election, whichever number is lower.
Upon receiving a valid petition to the board to place a proposal on the next board agenda for public hearing, the board will place the proposal identified in the petition on the agenda of the next regular meeting, or a special meeting held within 30 days of receipt of the petition. Please refer to Board Policy 213 for additional information.
How can I review the instructional materials used in classrooms?
Instructional materials must be viewed on school district premises. To view materials, contact the building administrator to make the arrangements to review the materials in question.
How can I request to have an item removed from the school library?
To have request to have an item considered for removal, first attempt should be made by contacting the classroom teacher or teacher librarian. If an arrangement can’t be made at this level, one of the following forms may be filled out and turned in to the North Linn District Office:
- Leisa Breitfelder, Superintendent / Human Resources
