Speakers must sign up at the beginning of the meeting and each speaker is limited to three minutes per board meeting.  If necessary, the Board President may need to reduce the three-minute time limit to accommodate more speakers in the 20 minutes allotted. The Board may approve an extension of the 20-minute time allocation to allow all speakers up to three-minutes. We ask speakers to remember that Iowa law prohibits the Board from discussing specific employees or students or their performance. Student speakers will state their name and school.
