    Note: The meeting agenda, Zoom webinar link, and public comment sign up form will be posted on this page 48 hours before the meeting.

    Public Comment: Sign up for public comment will close at 5 p.m. on the day of the meeting. The Committee will offer two public comment periods, with the first comment period limited to one hour. Priority will be given to those testifying in person. Time permitting, the Committee will then open it up to virtual testimony. After one hour, anyone who did not have the opportunity to testify will have the opportunity to do so at the end of the meeting. Written testimony can be emailed to esullivan3@bostonpublicschools.org for distribution to the Committee. If testifying virtually, please unmute yourself and turn on your camera when it is your turn to testify. Only speakers who turn on their camera will be allowed to testify; speakers who do not wish to be on camera can submit their testimony in writing. Speakers are asked to begin their remarks by stating their name, affiliation, and neighborhood of residence. Speakers must sign into the Zoom meeting using the same name that they used to sign up for public comment.

    Interpretation: Simultaneous interpretation services will be provided virtually throughout the meeting in Spanish, Cabo Verdean, Haitian Creole, Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and American Sign Language (ASL). When you join the meeting, look for the interpretation icon (the globe) at the bottom of your screen and select your language preference. To request interpretation services in a language other than those listed above, please email a request to esullivan3@bostonpublicschools.org at least seven (7) days before the meeting. Every effort will be made to fulfill the request. However, services cannot be guaranteed. 

    A video recording will be posted on the City of Boston's YouTube channel and at bostonpublicschools.org/schoolcommittee.
