Public Participation

Members of the public are encouraged to participate in IVA Board Meetings. To ensure an equal sharing opportunity is offered to all those wishing to participate, up to ten participants will be allotted three minutes each to speak on items that are already on the agenda, and up to ten participants will be allotted three minutes each to speak on any school business matters not already on the agenda.

Most often, IVA board meetings have fewer than ten members of the public wishing to participate and can therefore accommodate all requests to participate. Even so, to ensure there is space for your participation, it is suggested that you submit a public testimony request prior to the meeting. Such requests can be delivered to the school directly, or by submitting this form. If more than ten requests are received, they will be accommodated on first-come-first-served basis.

Members of the public may also submit this form to request an item of school business be added to a future board agenda. Such requests must be received at least 10 working days prior to the meeting date and will be forwarded to Howie Fitzgerald, Chairman of the Board of Directors. The Board Chair or designee will determine whether the matter is directly related to school district business.

Important Board Policies

At IVA we value respect, room for disagreement, consideration of multiple perspectives, transparency and due-diligence. We reflect our mission to foster meaningful growth in the nine master virtues by incorporating these virtues into the decision making process and our board policies. The board follows the Carver model of board-governance whereby the board establishes the ends and the staff determines the means to carry out these ends. The board stays out of the day-to-day operations and focuses on governance work at the scheduled meetings.
