Board Meeting Public Participation- BED(LOCAL)
The CLINT ISD Board of Trustees is committed to openness and candor in the conduct of its business and encourages patron participation.
CLINT ISD Trustees meet monthly in regular meetings on the third Thursday of the month. They may also meet in called meetings for workshops, trainings or to handle special business matters. Meetings are held at 5:30 p.m. at the Board Room at 14521 Horizon Blvd. El Paso, Texas 79928 unless otherwise posted. Meetings are open to the public and all meetings are posted as required by law. Citizens who wish to address the Board may do so by signing up to speak, prior to the beginning of the meeting.
Audience participation at a regular board meeting is limited to the public comment portion of the meeting. A "Public Forum" time is allotted at each regular meeting for citizens who wish to address the CLINT ISD Board of Trustees. The Texas Open Meetings Law prohibits the Board from taking action on any item not on the official agenda. Person(s) who wish to participate in this portion of the meeting shall sign up with the presiding officer or designee before the meeting begins and shall indicate the topic about which they wish to speak. Five minutes are allowed for presentations. A group of more than three persons shall appoint one person to present their views before the Board. Written statements may also be provided. The time limit is necessary to provide citizens an opportunity to give input while allowing adequate time for Board business. At regular meetings the Board shall allot 30 minutes to hear persons who desire to make comments to the Board.
The presiding officer shall determine whether the person bringing their comment and wishing to address the board has attempted to resolve the matter administratively through established complaint policies. If not, the person shall be directed to the appropriate policy to seek resolution before bringing the matter to the board. Concerns should be expressed as soon as possible to allow early resolution at the lowest possible administrative level.
