Members of the public may address the Charter Board on any item(s) ON or NOT ON the agenda for a total of three minutes for all items. Persons wishing to speak shall file a “Speaker Card” (green for items on the agenda, yellow for items not on the agenda) All individual speakers may be required to stop speaking by the Charter Board president, if the subject matter is not within the jurisdiction of the Board or the subject matter is legally not appropriated. No requests to speak to the Board will be granted after the meeting begins unless agreed to by a majority of the Board.
Topics not on the agenda, which are brought to the Board’s attention, may be investigated by the Administration and a report made to the Board members, either publicly or privately, at a future meeting. Complaints against Helix employees should be dealt with in Closed Session, not in Public. When individual citizens address the Board under item VI. Due to legal constraints, the Board cannot and will not take action. The Board is required to take action only on items that have been publicized in advance and have been advertised as being on the agenda.

The writing is graded on the Argumentative On Demand/Short Answer Common Core rubric.
