VII	HEARING SESSION - SUGGESTIONS AND COMMENTS FROM VISITORS

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC:	Persons wishing to speak to the Board of Education regarding 
any item are requested to fill out WHITE cards available on the tables in the Foyer and give 
to the Clerk of the Board.

At this time the President will review the agenda items and ask for comments from visitors.  
Comments on items other than those on the agenda are also welcomed.  This is a time for the 
Board of Education to hear comments from the public.  They are restricted from responding 
directly to the comments, but speakers are assured that their comments are very important 
and will be addressed in a different forum.  This is not meant to be a debating period.  
Complaints and problems relating to policy matters will be referred to the Superintendent.  
Further comments may be recognized by the Chairman during the meeting.

Persons who have complaints against board members or staff are encouraged to seek 
resolution of those complaints by utilization of the Fontana Unified School District written 
complaint procedure rather than orally addressing them at a meeting.  Speakers are cautioned 
that under California law no person is immune from liability for making intentionally false or 
defamatory comments regarding any person simply because those comments are made at a 
public meeting.

The Board of Education receives its agenda and other pertinent information on the Thursday 
prior to the meeting.  The Board, therefore, has had an opportunity to review all this 
material over the weekend prior to taking action.

It would be helpful if the speaker would provide their name, city of residence and whether or 
not they have any children in the Fontana Unified School District.
