Meetings are posted through the local media, City of Appleton, Appleton Public Library, and the AASD BoardDocs
website at least 24 hours in advance. All meetings are open to the public unless a Closed Executive Session is scheduled. (By law, Closed Executive Sessions can be held only to discuss matters which require confidentiality. Such issues include personnel action, student discipline, site acquisitions, litigation, or employee negotiations.)
Meetings are held in the Community Room of the Thomas G. Scullen Leadership Center, 122 E. College Ave, Suite 1A, Appleton, at 8:00 AM (times vary) on various days each month throughout the school year and summer unless there is a previous announced change.
Agendas will be posted on the district’s BoardDocs
Citizen Participation in Board Meetings
Copies of the Board Meeting Agenda are available on the BoardDocs website or at the Superintendent’s Office, the Friday before each meeting. The Agenda provides for Community Input (comments from citizens, students, staff, etc.) at the beginning of the meeting.
We welcome community participation and feedback! If you wish to comment during Community Input, please comply with the following guidelines:
- Each citizen wishing to speak is asked to complete a registration form stating his/her name, address, and topic for comments.
- Complaints or concerns about individual staff members or students should initially be brought to the staff member, his/her immediate supervisor, or submitted as a complaint in accordance with District Complaint Procedures. As personnel matters involve a variety of rights, these matters are not appropriate for the public comment period. The Board shall not consider or discuss such complaints or grievances.
- The Board President (or senior officer in attendance) or committee chair shall recognize all speakers.
- Speakers should be as brief as possible and only speak once during the period for public comment. Unless additional time is granted, a speaker shall limit his/her presentation to a maximum of three minutes.
- A group spokesperson may speak for up to five minutes. In fairness to other speakers, all time limits will be enforced.
- Individuals or groups requiring greater length of time should communicate in writing. Written correspondence to Board members may be directed to the Board through its Administrative Assistant or directly to their home addresses.
- Speakers should not be repetitious.
- Speakers who attend consecutive meetings should only sign up to speak if presenting new or additional information. Discussion of any single item may be limited at the discretion of the Board President or committee chair.
The Wisconsin Open Meeting Law requires that Board of Education members do not discuss topics or respond to questions that are not listed on the agenda.
