Public Comments

  • The Cumberland County Board of Education welcomes comments from the public and provides numerous opportunities for citizens to voice their opinions on issues affecting public education. 
    A public comment session is held during each scheduled Board meeting. Public Comments may be submitted to from 12:00 p.m. until 5:45 p.m. the day of the meeting. No walk-up sign-ups will be allowed – citizens must sign up electronically in advance of the meeting before the aforementioned deadline.
    Citizens will share their public comments in person, subject to an initial health screen in the parking lot prior to entering the building and mask-wearing requirements at all times while in the building. Speakers participating in the public comment period will remain in their cars and be invited to enter the building when it is their turn to speak. Each comment period is limited to 3 minutes with a total of 30 minutes set aside for public comments. Speakers will be allowed to share their comments of 3 minutes or less and then must exit the building.

    Concerns related to individual personnel or students should be directed to appropriate administrative staff and should not be shared during the Public Comment Period. Please feel free to contact any appropriate administrative official in this regard. Public Comment Guidelines.
