Have a question, thought, or comment for the Superintendent or School Board?
Here’s two different ways you can connect with district leadership:
Community Q & A: Superintendent Carpenter hosts a question/answer session each month at 5:30 pm prior to the monthly board meeting. All community members are welcome to post a question in the chat and hear answers for the 30 minute meeting. Here’s a link to the April 18th, 2022 session. If you cannot attend the live Q & A, you can email your question to Superintendent Carpenter: email@example.com
Fern Ridge School Board: The FRSD Board of Directors sets aside 30 minutes in every regular, public meeting to hear public comment. Community members are each given 3 minutes to speak and must turn the Intent to Speak form in by 1pm the day of the board meeting. Links to public comment policy and the Intent to Speak form are found here. The board meeting in April will be a hybrid of virtual and in-person. Speakers may attend in-person or within the virtual webinar. Links to each month’s board meeting can be found on the Boardbook page along with the board agenda and meeting attachments.
The board welcomes objective criticism of district operations and programs but is not able to hear comments regarding any individual district staff member. School board members are generally not able to respond to individual commenters and may refer to the superintendent for reply at a later time.
Comments emailed to board secretary Michelle Smith: firstname.lastname@example.org will be forwarded to the entire school board but will not be read into record at a board meeting. Individuals/Groups who submit the Intent to Speak form after the 1:00 pm deadline will be invited to comment at the following month’s meeting.
Each school board meting is recorded and posted on the School Board Meeting Recording page.
Please call 541-935-2253 ext 1203 or email email@example.com if you need assistance or have questions about public comment or the community Q & A.
