Meeting Protocol

 

The Board of Trustees and the Superintendent participate in various types of board meetings and adhere to policies and regulations as defined by the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Association of School Boards and the laws of the state of Texas. These meetings, with the exception of closed sessions, are open to the public, but are not meetings of the public. The purpose of each meeting is to conduct school district business and to provide the members of the Board an opportunity to discuss issues and exchange information with each other and with the staff. According to Open Meetings law, the Board can deliberate only on listed agenda items.

Advance notice of all Board meetings are distributed to the news media, listed on the district website www.isisd.net and posted at the front door of the Iraan-Sheffield ISD Administration Building, 100 Farr St. Iraan, Texas 79744. A list of currently scheduled regular Board meetings and notices for other types of Board meetings are available in the Superintendent's Office or can be accessed via the ISISD website. Meeting agendas can be obtained at the meeting, from the Superintendent’s Office, or on the district website, www.isisd.net .

 

New Board Meeting Protocols For 2021-22

 

Meetings will follow strict protocols to ensure the safety of board meeting participants, beginning with the August 10, 2021 meeting.

 

Capacity Restrictions

Due to the nature of certain topics, board meeting participation by community members can vary greatly. In most cases, the Boardroom capacity is sufficient for the number of participants. However, there are occasions where the number of people inside the Board Room and overflowing into the hallways exceeds capacity and safety requirements. 

 

After consultation with the Iraan Fire Marshall, Iraan-Sheffield  ISD has identified and set the capacity of the Board Room to 45 non-staff, non-Board Member, audience members. Such accommodations will provide safe and reasonable capacity numbers for a room set up with Board seating, reserved staff seating for those working the meeting and participant chairs. 

 

Board meetings will be livestreamed for those who are unable to attend. 

 

On Board meeting days, the doors to the Board Room will open at 5:30 p.m.

 

Open Forum 

At all Board meetings, the Board designates time to hear individuals who desire to make comments to the Board.  Those who wish to speak during the Open Forum portion of the meeting will be required to sign up in advance on the District’s Board Meeting website once the agenda is posted. The deadline to sign up will be noon the day before the Board Meeting.  

Each speaker has a time limit of one (1) to three (3) minutes, depending on timing needed for effective meeting management and to accommodate large numbers of individuals wanting to address the Board. 

Comments from Open Forum speakers shall be addressed to the Board as a whole and not to specific individuals. Please note: the Board is unable to respond directly to the Open Forum speakers. 

We value our community's input and look forward to working together for a strong, healthy school district! Thank you for your cooperation.
