Parent and Citizen Participation

EVA welcomes staff, parent and community participation at the school board meetings. The purpose of a public meeting of the Board of Directors is to conduct the affairs of the School in public. We are pleased that you are in attendance and hope that you will visit these meetings often. Your participation assures us of continuing community interest in our School.

Process to request a speaking slot:

  • Members of the community who wish to speak to the board during the public comment period should sign up HERE by 8am on the Monday prior to the meeting. A link to an electronic sign-up sheet will be available on the published meeting agenda. A list of speakers will be posted.
  • When the board is ready, the chair will refer to the sign-up sheet and call out the names of participants that have confirmed a speaking slot.
  • If more than 5 speakers sign up, those who have previously spoken within the past two board meetings will be moved to the bottom of the list, and the remaining will be randomized for the top 5.

To assist you in the ease of speaking/participating in our meetings, the following guidelines are provided.

  1. Agendas are available to all audience members on this website 24 hours before a regularly scheduled and special board meetings, or by requesting the agenda from School Officials by calling 541-751-8060.
  2. The “Public Comment” portion is set aside for members of the audience to raise issues that are not specifically on the agenda. These presentations are limited to three (3) minutes and total time allotted to non-agenda items will not exceed fifteen (15) minutes. The Board may give direction to staff to respond to your concern or you may be offered the option of returning with a citizen-requested item.
  3. When addressing the Board, speakers are requested to adhere to the time limits set forth.
  4. Citizens may request that a topic related to school business be placed on a future agenda by submitting a written request at least seventy-two (72) hours in advance of any regular meeting. Once such an item is properly placed on the agenda, the Board can respond, interact, and act upon the item.
