1. CALL TO ORDER
2. PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
3. READING OF THE MISSION STATEMENT
Clinton Central School proudly educates and empowers all students to realize their potential in becoming thoughtful, empathetic and contributing members of a global society.
4. PUBLIC TO BE HEARD
The Board encourages public participation on school related matters at Board meetings. To allow for this, a period of not more than 30 minutes shall be set aside at each Board meeting. Speakers shall limit their comments to no more than 5 minutes. The Board will not permit, in public session, discussion involving District personnel or students. All speakers are to conduct themselves in a civil manner. Questions and comments from the public concerning matters which are not on the agenda will be taken under consideration and referred to the Superintendent for appropriate action. If the Board considers a topic extraordinary and requires a discussion taking longer than 30 minutes, the Board will consider designating a separate forum dedicated to that topic.
The Board Meeting is a meeting held in public, not a public meeting. While this is an opportunity to speak directly to the Board of Education, please do not expect reciprocal dialogue with the board members or superintendent at the meeting. If you would like such dialogue, please contact the superintendent.
