Addressing the Board

At regular meetings, the Board sets aside a specific time to hear persons who desire to make comments to the Board concerning either agenda or non-agenda items.

At board workshops, special meetings, and retreats, the Board sets aside a specific time to hear persons who desire to make comments to the Board concerning agenda items.

Due to the size of the Visioning Committee Meeting (12/9/2020) and to promote safety and social distancing, this  meeting is being held remotely. Therefore, public comments at this special board meeting on agenda items must be submitted electronically and by hard copy submission.  Those wishing to comment should submit comments by either the hard copy form available at the front of Wayne F. Schaper, Sr. Leadership Center, 955 Campbell Road, Houston, Texas 77024, or the electronic form available here

Instructions for public comment are included on the hard copy and electronic forms. Public comment forms may be submitted from the time notice is posted until 12 hours prior to the start of the board meeting.  All comments timely submitted and properly completed will be read during the board meeting at the usual public comment time. Time allotted for each comment is up to 4 minutes.  The reader will stop reading after 4 minutes.  If there are more comments than can be read during the total allotted time of 20 minutes, individual comments may be reduced in time but no individual shall be given less than 1 minute to comment. As this is a special meeting, all comments will be limited to the agenda item. No non-agenda item comments will be read at this special meeting.

Because the rights of individuals are protected by various laws and board policies, complaints about specific employees  or students  will not be read but will be provided to the administration for consideration.
