  • Due to health concerns and in light of the statewide declaration of emergency related to the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Board Meetings and Work Sessions will be held in the Board Room located at 2700 W. 15th Street, Plano, Texas 75075 with limited seating capacity. An overflow location in the lobby with live streaming will be provided. A quorum of the Board will be physically present and the public is welcome to attend, realizing that seating and space is limited based on the Governor's current orders. In accordance with the Governor's Executive Order GA-29, and in the absence of any other clear rules and guidelines from the state regarding attendance at in-person governmental meetings during the statewide declaration of emergency, the Board Room and lobby will have limited seating with all persons in attendance wearing facemasks and practicing six-feet social distancing. Additionally, in accordance with Texas Education Agency guidance for visits by the general public, the District must screen all visitors to determine if the visitors have COVID-19 symptoms or are test-confirmed with COVID-19 and, if so, they must remain off District property. Entry to the Board Room and/or the overflow location in the lobby is on a first come, first served basis and individuals will be allowed entry as space is available. Everyone physically present must wear a mask at all times in accordance with the Governor's Executive Order except while giving a speech for a broadcast or to an audience. Any official with authority to enforce this Executive Order may act to enforce trespassing laws and remove violators. The Board Meetings and Work Sessions may also be viewed via live stream here and the public is encouraged to view the meeting online.  An electronic copy of agenda materials is available here. Additionally, a recording of the meeting will be posted online as soon as possible after the conclusion of the meeting. 

    A Public Comment Session is provided to hear persons who desire to make comments to the Board regarding agenda items. Individuals who wish to provide public comment to the Board at the designated time during a Board Meeting or Work Session must sign up in advance of the meeting by submitting a public comment card. Signup will open one hour before the posted meeting start time on the agenda and close at the posted meeting start time.  For Board Meetings, the Board will hear public comments regarding agenda and non-agenda items. For Work Sessions, public comments are limited to items on the posted agenda. An individual must indicate the item their comments pertain to on the agenda. For comments at a Board Meeting not related to an agenda item, an indivdual must indicate the topic of their comments.  Comments will be heard in order of the agenda item, allotting thirty minutes or until all agenda-related comments have been heard. Comment cards are not transferable to another speaker. Generally, the Board will conduct public comment at the beginning of a meeting. However, in the interest of time and the orderly conduct of business, the Board reserves the right to decrease the per-speaker time limit; take items in a different order than shown on the meeting notice; recommend that comments involving the performance of District employees be made through the grievance policy; require that comments involving personally identifiable student information be made through the grievance policy; move a meeting or an agenda item to another day in order to allow adequate time for public comment; and make other reasonable adjustments to the timing of public comment in accordance with law. A speaker will be given up to three minutes to address the Board. If, however, the total number of speakers seeking to address the Board at a meeting exceeds ten, the per-speaker time limit may be reduced. In no event will a speaker be given less than one minute to address the Board. All limitations set forth in Board Policy BED(LOCAL) will apply.
