League City, Houston, Nassau Bay, Clear Lake Shores and Clear Creek ISD each have monthly meetings of their city councils and school boards of trustees. 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. Those who sign up to speak beforehand are given three minutes to speak, and those who sign up late are given one minute.
City council and board members are restricted from responding to speakers about items that are not on the agenda for that particular meeting. Those who wish to speak should sign up beforehand, but a recent League City City Council meeting allowed those who had not signed up to speak.
Information about the school boards’ and city councils’ regularly scheduled meetings can be found in the City & School notes.
