    • A renewal petition for KIPP San Francisco College Prep High School

    • A resolution in support of reducing SFUSD assessments proposed by Commissioner Mark Sanchez

    • Several proposals to update Board policy, including the policies on absences and excuses, homework/make-up work, science and social science instruction and extracurricular activities.

Public Comment

There is always an opportunity for public comment at school board meetings. At regular meetings, speakers may speak to any item being voted on or may give general public comment during the time reserved for "Public Comment on General Matters." Speakers must sign up in advance, either by calling the board office at (415) 241-6493 or filling out a speaker card at the meeting and handing it to Esther Casco, the executive assistant to the board who sits next to the podium. Speaker cards must be turned in before the agenda item being spoken to is officially "called." Members of the public are typically allowed two minutes to speak, but time given may be shorter if there are a large number of speakers.
