Wake County school officials announced today three changes for public comment signup that will go into effect for Tuesday's school board meeting.
Potentially the most significant change is you will only be allowed to sign yourself up to speak. You won't be allowed to sign up other people.
This means that if you want to be among the first speakers that you'll have to arrive early. If you're not early you could have to wait until the end of the meeting to speak.
Speakers will also no longer have to list their address and phone number on the signup sheet. They'll only need to include their name and town or city.
The final change is that people will be asked to put their voucher seat number on the signup sheet. School officials say it will make it easier for them to find people who may be in an overflow room.
You can still sign up to speak if you don't have a voucher.
"These changes are in an effort to make signing up for public comment faster, more efficient and equitable," according to a school district media advisory.
