    Public Comment Format

    The GO Team of Ralph J. Bunche Middle School welcomes and encourages citizens and community members to attend meetings to become better acquainted with the programs of the school and the role of the GO Team.  The GO Team meetings are open to the public. Citizens are encouraged to attend; however, refrain from interrupting or distracting the GO Team proceedings.  For citizens and/or community members wishing to provide a public comment, there will be an allotted time on the agenda, 20 minutes for a maximum of 5 speakers. Each speaker will have 2 minutes to provide feedback/speak. At the end of the 20 minutes the Public Comment Forum will close and move on to the next agenda item. Please note, the Public Comment period is designed to gain input from the public and not for immediate responses by the GO Team. However, a GO Team member may ask clarifying questions to better understand the comments/concerns.  If necessary the principal will follow-up with those community members that may require additional feedback in regards to their questions or provide a general statement during the next GO Team meeting.
