The new world of online sign-up for public comment at Wake County school board meetings begins Tuesday.
According to a district press release, you can register to speak Tuesday at the district's homepage beginning at 3 p.m. Computers will also be available for you to register in person at the school board offices at 3600 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.
You'll have until 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday to sign up. Public comment starts at 6 p.m.
Sign up will begin 30 minutes prior to the start of the school board work session/commitee of the whole meeting and end 15 minutes prior to the start of the public comment portion of the regular board meeting.
Keep that in mind because the COW meetings may start at different times, COW starts at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday but may start earlier in the future if they've got a lot to discuss.
Tuesday marks the first attempt at starting regular board meetings at 5:30 p.m. instead of the usual 3 p.m. time. It's supposed to make it easier for people who work to attend the meetings.
Also, seat vouchers for the regular board meetings will now be distributed beginning at 3 p.m.
