Public Comment Resources
A major component of the RFF process is the 30-day public comment period during which the School Governance Council (SGC) invites parents, staff, students and community members to provide feedback on the proposed RFF. We have highlighted a number of examples of community outreach from current SGCs to help you in this process.
Checklists and Scripts: Public Comment Checklist, Council meeting script and Council meeting handout will keep you on track.
Sample Announcements: Check out Holcomb Bridge's website and Centennial's letter sharing the public comment process.
Sample Feedback Forms: Here are some examples of feedback forms using Google Doc (Cambridge), flyer (Medlock Bridge) and paper form (Shakerag)
Sample Q&As: Shakerag SGC and Centennial SGC created Q&A documents to answer commonly asked questions regarding their proposed RFFs.
