As required by Montana law, members of the community are given an opportunity to make brief comments to the Board on any matters not included in the agenda. Individuals wishing to be heard shall first be recognized by the Chairperson. Individuals, after identifying themselves, will proceed to make brief comments. The board would like to remind everyone that to avoid violations of individual rights of privacy, a member of the public wishing to address the Board will not be allowed to make comments about any student, staff member, or member of the general public. No action may be taken on any matter discussed during the public comment portion of the meeting, until such time as the matter is specifically noticed on an agenda, and the public has been allowed the opportunity to comment.
