Board Meeting Participation Policy

All KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools' board meetings are open to the public.

Time is set aside at each regularly scheduled quarterly meeting to provide stakeholders the opportunity to address the Board. The public comment period is designed to gain input from the public and not for immediate responses by the Board to the public comments presented.

Individuals who wish to address issues related to an individual school should communicate directly with the school’s advisory board using that school’s advisory board communication protocols or by following the established grievance process outlined in the student/parent handbook (if applicable).  Individuals who wish to address the regional governing board about a more global concern at a Board meeting will be required to sign up in advance of the meeting by calling the Executive Director’s office at least 24 hours in advance.

  • Speakers should be courteous and professional. The presiding Board officer may terminate public comments that are profane, vulgar, or defamatory.
  • Speakers will be heard in the order in which they called in.
  • Speakers have three minutes each and must stop speaking promptly when signaled.
  • The board reserves the right to cap the public comment period to the first seven parents who sign up.
  • Speakers may not address confidential student or personnel matters, but may submit such concerns to the Board in writing.
  • Board members will not respond to the comments during the meeting.  If follow-up is necessary, the appropriate staff or a representative of the Board will follow-up in a timely manner via email, letter, or telephone.
