During the course of the Board meeting, the Boonton Board of Education offers members of the public the opportunity to address issues regarding the operation of the Boonton Public Schools. The Board reminds those individual who take this opportunity to identify themselves by name and address and to limit their comments to items listed on the agenda and/or items directly related to the School District.

Issues raised by members of the public may or may not be responded to by the Board. All comments, however, will be considered and a response will be forthcoming if and when appropriate.

The Board asks that members of the public be courteous and mindful of the rights of other individuals when speaking. Specifically, comments regarding students and employees of the Board are discouraged and will not be responded to by the Board as students and employees have specific legal rights afforded by the laws of New Jersey.

The Board bears no responsibility nor will it be liable for any comments made by members of the public; therefore, public members should consider their comments in light of the legal rights of those affected or identified in their comments and should be aware that they are legally responsible and liable for their comments.
