    Speakers are welcome to offer comments or criticism directed at substantive ideas, actions, or procedures of the Board and individual Board members. In the interest of maintaining civility and decorum, however, speakers are encouraged to refrain from personal attacks and insults directed at the Board, individual Board members, staff, or members of the general public.

    The laws and policies of North Carolina provide that issues or concerns involving individual personnel matters are confidential, and therefore, not appropriate for public comment settings. Concerns related to personnel issues may be addressed through applicable WCPSS personnel, the grievance policy, or other applicable policies.

    Speakers, including students, may discuss issues and matters of general concern, but should refrain from discussing confidential student information. Concerns related to confidential student matters may be addressed through applicable WCPSS personnel, the grievance policy or other applicable policies.

    Special Accommodations

    Anyone who requires disability accommodations or may have trouble accessing phone or internet access for the Board’s electronic meetings is  encouraged to contact Melissa Allen at mrallen@wcpss.net prior to the day of the meeting to explore whether alternative arrangements can be made for the submission of public comment.
