The Board of Education recognizes the value of public input on education issues and the importance of allowing members of the public to express themselves on District matters. Members of the public may speak in person during the Audience to Visitors section of the meeting or submit written documents to the board by emailing comments to Kathy Sloniker at kslonike@syc427.org.

The public is invited to attend Board of Education meetings in person.

If more than 25 members of the public arrive, they will be directed to watch the meeting in an overflow room. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Board of Education meetings are also streamed on SpartanTV.
