Miguel del Valle President, and
Members of the Board of Education
Enclosed is a copy of the Agenda for the Board of Education Meeting to be held on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, at 10:30 a.m. The Governor’s Disaster Proclamation, which declared, in part, that in-person attendance of more than 10 people was not feasible in light of public health concerns, has expired. Accordingly, the Board President and the Interim Chief Executive Officer have determined that registered speakers who wish to present during Public Participation may have the option to participate in person at the location of the Board meeting or virtually via an electronic platform. The public will have access to the meeting via live stream at cpsboe.org.
Interim Guidelines have been issued by the President of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago in accordance with Board Rule 2-4.1. These Interim Guidelines are effective July 26, 2021. During the period they are in effect, these Interim Guidelines supersede the Public Participation Guidelines issued August 28, 2013 (rev. September 13, 2018). These Interim Guidelines are available on www.cpsboe.org and attached to this notice.
For the August 25, 2021 Board Meeting, advance registration to speak will be available beginning Monday, August 23rd at 10:30 a.m. and will close on Tuesday, August 24th at 5:00 p.m., or until all slots are filled. Advance registration during this period is available by the following methods:
- Online: www.cpsboe.org (recommended)
- Phone: (312) 989-7313
To ensure equity of access to address the Board, an individual may not speak at two (2) consecutive Board Meetings. In the event an individual registers to speak at a consecutive Board Meeting, the individual will not be called to address the Board.
The Public Participation segment of the meeting will begin following the Interim CEO Remarks and proceed for no more than 30 registered speakers for one hour. Registered speakers will receive instructions for Public Participation.
Members of the public may submit written comments for Board of Education meetings via the Written Comments Form on the Board’s website at www.cpsboe.org or mailed to 1 N Dearborn, Suite 950.
