Address the Board

Attend an upcoming board meeting

The Board meets every second and fourth Monday each month and encourages interested citizens to attend. Those wishing to speak at a meeting must send a written request to the treasurer of the Board preferably a week, but no later than two working days, before the date of the meeting. The request should state: 

  • The general subject(s) to be addressed
  • The name, address and telephone number of the person making the request.

 

The number of topics that may be addressed at any one meeting shall be fixed at three (3), the number of speakers on each topic shall be no more than three (3) and each speaker may not exceed three (3) minutes on any one topic.

Requests to speak before the board should be sent to: Treasurer, Akron Public Schools, 70 N. Broadway, Akron OH 44308.

Although the community is welcome to speak, discussions involving particular employees or specific situations are not appropriate topics for a public meeting of the board. Such concerns should be handled through appropriate channels – beginning at the building level and progressing through the central office administration to the superintendent.

During the meeting, guests should remain seated. Discussions or appearances by others should not be interrupted. The board president will recognize anyone scheduled to address the board at the proper time during the meeting.

Board meetings are held in the board room on the second floor of the Administration Building, located at 70 N. Broadway in Akron unless otherwise noted. See Calendar.
