            Members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend meetings of the Alleghany County School board to observe its deliberations.  Any member of the community may address the Board on matters related to the Alleghany County Public Schools at any regular meeting as provided in the accompanying regulation.  Persons wishing to address the School board are requested to contact the superintendent, the School Board chairman, or their designee for placement on the agenda.


The chairman is responsible for the orderly conduct of the meeting and shall rule on such matters as the appropriateness of the subject being presented and length of time for such presentation.  No one will be allowed to make additional presentations until everyone who wishes to speak has an opportunity to make an initial presentation.


            A reasonable period of time, as determined by the School board, will be allocated at each regular meeting for community members to present matters of concern.
