July 20 @ 5PM – LB BOE Meeting: Your Comments Needed

Let the BOE Know What You Think

We continue to encourage our members, community members, parents and students to contact the Board of Education. They need to hear from everyone about their absence of engagement.

Next Board of Education Meeting – Monday, July 20, 2020 @ 5:00 p.m.

To send a comment in to be read by the Board of Education secretary, Leticia Rodriguez, at the next school board meeting. Type up a quick comment. Read it aloud and time yourself. Your comments must be under 3 minutes (and maybe under two minutes if they cut public comment time) – that’s all the time you’ll get – once the timer goes off, Leticia will stop reading it. 

Typically there are two opportunities to address the Board of Education.

1) You can make public comment on items listed on the agenda = reopening of schools, online instruction, ect. 

2) You can make public comment on items that are not listed on the agenda = Budget priorities, Framework for Reconciliation in Long Beach Unified, Reopening of schools, Superintendent pay raise, promotions, etc.

If you want your comments to be read aloud during the public session of the Board of Education meeting, send an email to  open.session.agenda.comment@lbschools.net

If you want your comments to be read aloud during the closed session of the Board of Education meeting, send an email to closed.session.public.comment@lbschools.net
