How can residents speak up at school board and city council meetings?


Round Rock, Pflugerville and Hutto each have monthly meetings of their school boards of trustees and city councils. Each meeting provides a forum during which members of the public can speak for a limited amount of time about relevant topics.

Public speakers at school board meetings are encouraged to speak on the topics of education and district policies, curriculum and facilities. However, speakers are asked not to discuss concerns or complaints about specific individuals.

City council and board members are restricted from responding to speakers about items that are not on the agenda for that particular meeting. Anyone wishing to speak should fill out and submit a registration card at the beginning of that meeting.

Information about each district’s board of trustees’ regular meeting schedule can be found in the Education Notes (see Page 20). Details on each city’s regularly scheduled city council meetings can be found in the City & County notes (see Page 21).
