Per the Buncombe County Commissioner’s January 4, 2022 Order Extending Requirements for Face Coverings in Public Spaces, and the December 2, 2021 Buncombe County Schools Board of Education decision that face coverings will be required of all students, staff, and visitors inside of Buncombe County Schools’ buildings – face coverings will be required by all to enter the building. Further instructions will be provided upon arrival.

Speakers will be called in the order in which they signed up.  All speakers will have precisely three minutes to speak and must adhere to guidelines set forth in BCS Policy #2310 – Public Participation, including all reasonable rules established by the Superintendent. Profane language, making threats, or revealing confidential student or staff information will not be allowed. Please address the Board as a whole. Note that the Board will not be able to respond directly to public comment.
