Public comment policy, adopted January 2020:

The LMS Board of Directors recognizes that its deliberations benefit greatly from public input and perspective. In order to allow the public to address the Board on school-related topics, the Board will hold a public comment period at its regularly called board meetings. The public comment period will not exceed 10 minutes. We respectfully ask that participants in the comment period follow the following guidelines:
  • All speakers must sign in, and speakers will be heard in the order indicated on the sign-in sheet.
  • No presentation by a speaker shall exceed 3 minutes. A timing device will signal the end of an individual's comment period.
  • Speakers shall confine their comments to issues within the domain of the Board.
  • Speakers shall not yield their time to another speaker.
  • Participants are reminded that Board members are without authority to act independently as individuals in official matters. Understand the Board will not respond to speakers during the comment period. Complaints or other inquiries requiring a formal response from the Board should be submitted under the terms of the complaint policy outlined below.  
Complaint policy:

This process requires that any and all complaints be brought first to the LMS administration team. If the concern has not been adequately addressed by the school’s administration, the concern/complaint may then submitted to the LMS Board of Directors in writing.

Written complaints to the LMS Board of Directors should include:
  • A detailed statement of the complaint.
  • What, if any, response you received from the LMS administration team.
  • Copies of all relevant correspondence between you and the school.
  • What specific action or relief you are seeking.
  • Contact information for you - name, address, telephone number, e-mail address
A member of the board of directors will send an initial reply within 5 business days.
