Provide Feedback on PESB Policy and Programs
Each Board meeting includes opportunity for public comment. The Board welcomes comments about current agenda items, as well as comments on other areas over which each has authority. When individuals take time to bring their comments to the Board, members want to ensure that the input is heard. They consider comments in their decision making and initiative effort, and public comments also become part of the public record. To ensure the boards have accurate information for their reference and the public record, the Board requests all public comments be provided in written form.
Here are the options for bringing public comment before the Board.
- Provide public testimony at the next board meeting. Sign in for public comment. The Chair will use this list to introduce speakers. Bring a written copy of your public comment to leave with the Board Executive Assistant or email a copy to PESB@k12.wa.us before the end of the meeting where comment is presented. If you have materials for the Board, please bring at least 16 copies for members and staff. The Chair may limit in-person testimony to two (2) minutes per topic.
- Email your public comment to PESB@k12.wa.us by 8:00 a.m. the Monday before the Board meeting. Please note “Public Comment” in the subject line. Email comments received by 8:00 a.m. the Monday before the Board meeting will be included in that meeting’s materials. Emails received after that time will be forwarded to a future meeting.
- Send your written comments to: PO Box 47236, Olympia, WA 98514-7236. Written comments received by 8:00 a.m. the Monday before the Board meeting will be included in that meeting’s materials. Those received after that time will be forwarded to a future meeting.
Thank you for submitting your comments as requested here. By providing a written copy of your public comment to the Board, it can be more fully considered and followed up on as determined to be appropriate by the Board.
