The Superintendent of Schools is the chief executive officer of the district but does not vote. It is the Superintendent's responsibility to advise board members on all matters, to execute policies and decisions made by the board, and to operate the district so that all students receive the best education possible.
Board meetings are held for the purpose of conducting the business of the district and are not public meetings, but meetings held in public. All regular and special meetings of the board shall be open to the public.
The board desires to hear the viewpoints of citizens, students, and employee organizations and shall schedule times at all meetings for them to be heard.
When addressing the board during Public Comment, state your name and address at the start of your comment. Please limit your comments to three minutes.
Audience time is not intended as a forum for public debate. Questions raised may require further investigation. Normally, the board will wait until its next meeting before responding to concerns raised.
Residents of the community are encouraged to communicate with Cedar Springs Public School educators and school board members.
School-related problems can usually best be solved by talking with the employee closest to the problem, i.e. teachers, support staff, principal. It is there that most problems can be quickly and productively resolved.
If questions still remain, please contact the superintendent. And, if you're convinced that further action is required, your next step is to submit it to the Board of Education. You may address the Board at a board meeting during the Public Comment portion of the agenda or in writing to the Board of Education, 204 E Muskegon Street, Cedar Springs, MI 49319.
