PUBLIC COMMENT

The Pennsauken Township Board of Education recognizes that the schools are the concern of all members of the
community. With this in mind, the Board of Education welcomes and solicits input from the public. During the
regular monthly Meetings, members of the community are afforded an opportunity to express their views. It does,
however, respectfully suggest that citizens attempt to resolve concerns by speaking directly to school
administrators before bringing it to the Board. Individuals with a relevant interest in the functions or duties of the
Board are invited to speak a maximum of five (5) minutes on any one issue. You are required to give your name
and address before speaking. Seeing no comment from the public a motion was made by Mrs. Muller and
seconded by Mr. Kofoet to close Public Comment the motion was approved by a unanimous voice vote (7-0-0).
