*Public Comment Policy - MICS Board Meetings
The agenda of every regularly scheduled Board of Directors 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 Board 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 and attendees 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.

May 2020 - The MICS Board will cancel its May meeting due to Phase 1 restrictions and the lack of required board business to conduct.  This change does not mean that the school is not doing important things to finish our 19-20 school year and contemplate potential 20-21 year changes that may be necessary, but those updates are available in the Raptor Call.  The board will be meeting, in whatever way is necessary per restrictions, on their next scheduled date June 8th.  Any changes to the normal meeting place or format due to restrictions will be posted on this page before that meeting.  Thank you to all Raptors for the work you have done to make the past two months a reality for our students and school during this pandemic response.  We are, as always, proud Raptors.
