The Chair will recognize those wishing to speak and give them the floor.  Only persons recognized by the Chair may speak.  For purposes of the minutes, speakers should identify themselves at the beginning of their remarks.
The purpose of Public Comment is to receive input from the community, not to engage in prolonged conversation with the Committee. The Chair will ensure that any comment or question that requires a response from the committee or the School Department will be addressed in a timely manner.
All comments should be addressed through the Chair, not any individual committee member or to others in attendance.
