Audience to the Public

Audience to the Public

The Syosset Board of Education and Administration welcome your attendance at Board of Education meetings. The meetings will also be broadcast on the District Radio Station, WKWZ 88.5 FM. The Board of Education recognizes the value of community participation. As such, audience to the public affords residents of the District the opportunity to address the Board of Education.

The procedure for Audience to the Public will be as follows:

  • Those who wish to speak during audience to the public must first be recognized by the chair.  

  • Residents must enter their full name and address into the Register located at the microphone before they speak.

  • Each resident will have an initial four minutes to address the Board of Education.

  • The Board of Education and/or Administration will do their best to provide an immediate response to the resident’s question following the initial question, at which point the resident will be permitted one follow-up related question or statement.

  • Any resident who would like to re-address the Board of Education after their initial turn, may do so after every other resident-audience member has the opportunity to address the Board of Education.

  • Neither the public nor Board of Education and Administration, may identify a specific student or staff member by name or easily identifiable language during Audience to the Public.  Collective bargaining negotiations, personnel matters, confidential student matters, or legal matters may not be discussed in this forum.

  • All in attendance at the Board of Education Public Meeting must conduct themselves in a respectful manner.
