Anyone wishing to address the Akron Board of Education at a meeting may email his or her request to addresstheboard@apslearns.org prior to the start of the meeting at which that person would like to speak. People may also sign up, in person at a meeting, before the start of the meeting.

Some citizens had been critical, in the past, of the previous policy that called for several steps and advance notice to the board of two business days for anyone wishing to speak.

Board President Patrick Bravo said after Monday's meeting (5/4/20), "We absolutely encourage public participation and are happy to streamline the process to make it simpler for everyone."
