At the regular meeting held Oct. 6, the Oswego City School District Board of Education put into a place a new protocol for the community to take part in its public meetings. Similar to the recently employed community participation process that was used during budget season, community members are now able to submit their questions or comments to board using this new link:

Board of Education Community Questions 

Upon submission, the board will review the content and then read it aloud at its regular board meetings.
When submitting information, community members should keep in mind the following:
  • It is expected that all submissions be written in a civil manner.  Any submission that constitutes a direct threat against officers, employees or students of the school district, or that is obscene, will be ruled out of order.
  • No personal attacks will be tolerated nor will any submission addressing specific district personnel or students by name or suggestion.
  • Questions or comments concerning matters that are not on the agenda will be taken under consideration and referred to the superintendent for appropriate action.
  • Members of the community may comment on any matter related to district business.
  • A brief description of the topic of the submission is requested in the submission link.
  • Submissions should be as brief as possible and should be the total length of no longer than 3 minutes.
