                                       Monday, 26 April 2010

                                (390 North Market Street Extended)

I.     Call to Order: Mr. John Hanenfeld, Board President – 7:00 p.m.

II.    Pledge of Allegiance – 7:00 p.m.

III.   Approval of Agenda (Item of Action for the Board) – 7:00 p.m.
       If needed, items may be added to or deleted from the public agenda. After an opportunity to add
       or delete items, the Board will vote to approve the agenda as either initially presented or as
       amended.

IV.    Approval of Minutes – 7:05 p.m.
       8 March 2010 (6:00 p.m.)
       12 April 2010 (7:00 p.m.)

V.     Public Participation – 7:10 p.m.
       By Board policy, a period for public participation is scheduled during each regular meeting. At
       the discretion of the presiding officer, any non-confidential educational items may be questioned,
       commented upon, requested, and presented with the following stipulations: Complaints are to
       be resolved in accordance with Board policy and regulations, “Public Complaints” (KE and KE-
       R-1), “Parent Complaints” (KEAA and KEAA-R), “Student Complaints” (JII and JII-R), or “Staff
       Complaints” (GBK and GBK-R).

       The public participation portion of the Board meeting is not intended to circumvent the
       organizational avenues of communications and/or complaints as stipulated in Board policies and
       regulations. These emphasize discussing and trying to resolve matters closest to the source, and
       then, if necessary, discussing and trying to resolve them at progressively higher levels within the
       organization, ending with the Board of Education.

       The public participation portion of the Board meeting is not intended for items requiring
       immediate Board action nor should parents, other citizens, students, or staff expect the Board to
       take action at this time.

       When parents, other citizens, students, or staff wish to address the Board, they should first
       complete a form available to them when they enter the Board Room. After completion of the
       form, they are to present it to the presiding officer prior to the start of the Board meeting.
       Parents, other citizens, students, or staff wishing to address the Board shall first be recognized by
       the presiding officer. They shall then state name, address, and subject matter, and then proceed
       to make comments as briefly as possible. The presiding officer may limit the time of each
       speaker.

       The distribution of any written or printed materials and the like shall be confined to the Board
       members and the Superintendent.

       Those addressing the Board are to direct their questions or comments to the Board members or to
       the Superintendent. Questions asked shall be answered at the Board meeting, when possible.
       When not possible, the questions shall be referred to the Superintendent for investigation. The
       Superintendent shall share with the Board the information collected as a result of the
       investigation, and the Board shall decide how to respond. Normally, such a response will be in
       writing.
