Effective with the June 14, 2022 school board meeting, Orange County Schools will no longer use an electronic / online form for signing up to make public comments. 

    Effective June 14, anyone who wishes to make public comments during an Orange County Schools Board of Education meeting must arrive (in-person) prior to the meeting’s scheduled start time to sign up. 

    • An official, paper sign-up form will be made available at the entrance to the meeting space from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. 
    • There will be 20 available slots per meeting. 
    • Each person will have three minutes to speak, and the public comment period during each meeting will be limited to one hour.

    Once the meeting has been called to order, no one else will be permitted to sign up.

    The Board will continue to accept written comments up until midnight on the night of the meeting. Written comments will become public record, to be included in the minutes.

    A link to provide written comments will be made available 48 hours prior to the meeting date at this link: https://www.orangecountyfirst.com/Page/1418, which is also where all upcoming meeting details are posted.

  • SPECIAL CALLED MEETINGS: For special called meetings, the Board may, but is not required to provide a process for comments.

    IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER: In case of inclement weather resulting in school closures on the day of a scheduled Board of Education meeting, the scheduled Board meeting will be held virtually.  Individuals who were registered to give in-person public comments can access the meeting via the link on the OCS Board webpage.
