Public Comment Policy

The agenda of every regularly scheduled Board of Director meeting will include a designated time for public comment by those in attendance.  Individuals or a representative of an organization may address the Board on any subject that falls within the purview of Mountain Island Charter School (MICS).  The speaking order and agenda placement for public comment will be at the discretion of the Chair.  A maximum of seven individuals and/or group representatives will be allowed to speak.  Each speaker will be allowed a maximum of three minutes to speak; each group representative will be allowed a maximum of five minutes.  Individuals or group representatives may only make a single appearance at each regularly scheduled Board meeting. 


Members of the Board are free to ask questions of and respond to speakers; however, members are not required to respond or directly address speaker comments.  Speakers must give their name and relation to or involvement with MICS at the beginning of their comments.  Speakers should only address the Board with their comments.  Speakers and attendees should not address other speakers or attendees with their comments.  Communication should be respectful and in a conversational tone at all times.  Sharing or granting speaking time to others is not permitted.  Any materials a speaker desires to provide the Board should be sent to the Board Secretary up to 72 hours before the Board meeting at which they are speaking.  Distribution of materials by speakers or attendees at Board meetings will not be permitted.  Speakers and attendees are welcome to be present for the entire board meeting; however, they may not participate or comment.  Disruptions or attempts to interact with board members may be grounds to be asked to leave the meeting.  If necessary, the Board Meeting will be adjourned.


In the event that a majority of Board members are out of town, a (public) conference call may be substituted for an in-person meeting. 

Please check the website for any meeting changes or alterations (i.e. date changes, call-ins, etc.).


The MICS board has four sub-committees that meet as needed between meetings to do initial work for consideration or approval by the full board as needed.  These subcommittees are Finance, Human Resources, Governance, and Facilities.  Should your interest or skill set lead you to want to work with the Board members on any of these subcommittees, please contact any Board member for more information.

If you would like to address the Board at any meeting, please contact
