Would you like your voice to be heard at the upcoming Board of Education meeting during public comments?  Here’s How:

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

If you want your comments to be read aloud during the closed session of the Board of Education meeting, send an email to
