Address the Board

Addressing the board is governed by the board bylaws po0169.1.

The board meets twice monthly on alternating Mondays unless otherwise noted on the board's calendar. Those wishing to speak at a meeting may send a written request to the email address listed here or by U.S. Mail to the Treasurer's Office address, also listed below.

Any person or group wishing to address the Board shall register his or her intent by signing up at the meeting location prior to the meeting being called to order (the beginning of the meeting), send via US Mail to: CFO/Treasurer, Akron Public Schools, 10 N. Main St. Akron, OH 44308, or electronically (you may email at addresstheboard@apslearns.org) no earlier than sixteen (16) business days prior to the meeting. The following must be provided to address the Board:
  • Name and address of the participant;
  • Group affiliation, if and when appropriate; and
  • Topic to be addressed.
Although the community is welcome to speak, discussions involving  topics related to vendors/business matters, formal complaints, grievances, specific students or student records, personnel matters, and potential or pending legal matters 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 boardroom on the second floor of the Administration Building, located at 10 N. Main St. in downtown Akron, unless otherwise noted. Board meeting dates may be found here >>.

If you have additional questions, please contact the CFO/Treasurer at 330.761.2850.
