Individuals wishing to address the Board may sign up online starting in February

Fayetteville – The Cumberland County Schools (CCS) is moving to an electronic sign-up form for individuals wishing to publicly speak to the Cumberland County Board of Education during the regularly scheduled meeting on the second Tuesday of each month. This new process, which will be in place starting with the February 12 meeting, will make it easier and more convenient for parents and community stakeholders to sign up and share their feedback with the Board.

Individuals requesting to speak during the public comment period may sign up using the following link https://goo.gl/forms/ZGa8Q33DJMo3D9tH3, which will be accessible starting at noon on Board meeting days and remain open until 6:15 p.m. To facilitate the sign-up process, CCS will provide an electronic device at each Board meeting, and staff will be on hand to assist as needed. A pen and paper option will be available upon request. The cut-off time to sign up to speak during the public comment period is 6:15 p.m.

A maximum of 30 minutes will be devoted to the public comment portion of the agenda, and public comments are limited to three minutes per speaker to ensure multiple individuals are able to address the Board. In an effort to ensure the Board receives time-sensitive feedback from individuals who wish to share concerns about topics on the agenda, speakers addressing items on the Board’s monthly meeting agenda will speak first.
