While the School Board is meeting virtually during the current health emergencies, public comments will be accepted by voicemail. These voicemails will be played during our virtual board meeting so the entire board and members of the public can hear them.

For the April 14 business meeting, public comments will be accepted via voicemail until April 11 at noon. The first 3 hours of voicemails (2 minutes per commenter maximum) left by April 11 at noon will be played during the April 14 meeting.

As always, feedback can also be emailed to the entire Board by clicking here.

To leave a voicemail, call 612-668-1229 and follow the instructions, which can also be found below:

Your comment will be played if you include your name and relationship to MPS, your comments do not contain identifiable information about employees or students, and your comments do not contain profanity, insults, or threats. By leaving a voicemail here, you understand that your message is public data under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act and will be made available upon request. If left in Spanish, Somali, or Hmong, your voicemail will be translated and played in English during the meeting.

School Board guidelines for public comment

The Board of Education values public input. The responsibility of the Board is to actively listen and reflect on public comments. Guidelines for public input emphasize respect and consideration of others.  We ask individuals that desire to speak to respectfully agree to the meeting guidelines below: 

  • Public Comment occurs towards the beginning of monthly Board business meetings, which typically occur on the second Tuesday of each month.
  • Each person who signs up to speak should arrive by 5:20 PM.
  • During the 45 minute Public Comment period, each registered speaker will have up to 3 minutes in which to address the Board. The Board Chair may shorten the time, depending on the number of speakers.
  • If a large group of people wishes to come to discuss a specific topic, please designate one person to sign up and speak.
  • If you have hand-outs or materials for the Board, please present them to the Board's Executive Assistant, seated at the back of the room, who will distribute them to the Board members after the meeting.
  • Members of the public should not approach the dais, where the Board is seated.
  • The Board Chair has full discretion over the Public Comment period, including the ability to manage speaking time to allow for additional comments.
  • Parents and guardians will be given priority to speak during public comment.
  • No inappropriate comments or behavior will be tolerated. Inappropriate behavior is defined as attempting to engage individual board members in conversation, insults, obscenities or profanity, attacks against any person in his/her personal capacity, and/or physical violence or threat thereof.
  • Please be advised that information provided to make public comment is considered public information under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act and must be made available upon request.  You are not required to provide the information, but if the information is not provided, you will not be allowed to speak during public comment.
