Public Participation

We happily invite members of the community to speak and share their thoughts, ideas and concerns with us during the Public Participation portion of our meeting. During this time, each community member will have three minutes to speak. There will be a sign-up sheet available 30 minutes prior to the start of the meeting. Once the Public Participation portion of our agenda begins, we will remove the sign-up sheet and invite speakers to share their thoughts in the order indicated on the sign-up sheet.  Please scroll down to see our Policy on Procedure for Public Comments.

Meetings are scheduled from 6:30 to 8:00pm on the fourth Tuesday of every month unless otherwise noted.

Agendas and minutes from past meetings:




The Board of Trustees of Brooklyn Urban Garden Charter School desires to provide the general public with an opportunity at each Board of Trustees meeting to address the Board regarding issues that they may wish to bring to the Board’s attention. In order to facilitate a reasonable, orderly procedure for holding a public comment period, the Board sets forth the following policy to be observed at each Board meeting:

  • An individual wishing to address the Board must print his or her name on the sign-in sheet available at the entrance to the room where the Board meeting is being held.

  • Any individual wishing to address the Board must sign up to do so prior to the call to order of the Board meeting. No requests to speak will be accepted after the meeting has begun.

  • There will be a limit of ten (10) members of the public permitted to speak at any one Board meeting.

  • Each person wishing to speak will be limited to three (3) minutes regardless of whether or not the permitted maximum of ten (10) people sign up to speak.

  • Only the person who has written his or her name on the sign-in sheet may speak and each person signed up to speak may only speak once at any one Board meeting.

  • Members of the Board will respectfully listen to each public comment, but shall not be obligated to respond in kind with questions, answers or other comments.
