What does "Public Comment" mean and how is it used at a school district's board of trustees meeting?

"Public Comment" is an opportunity for anyone to speak at an Open Meeting, such as any school district's Board of Trustees' meeting. Comments are usually limited by the President to three minutes. It is permissible to bring prepared written copies of your comments for each of the Trustees, and one copy to give to the Board's assistant for entering into the Minutes "for the record." If you desire to voice a request to the Trustees for a specific outcome, action, or a solution for their consideration, it is appropriate to do so when the President asks for Public Comment.

How can I find out when and where my board of trustees will meet next?
