How to speak at an AUSD board meeting


At the Aug. 25 AUSD board meeting, Shi Ying Chen, a former San Gabriel High math teacher, recounted some of her experiences at San Gabriel and how the administration’s treatment of her forced her to retire.

Do you have concerns regarding the Alhambra Unified School Board? Are you or students that you know facing unfair retribution? Has the district badly handled, or even ignored, your concerns?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, we invite you to speak up and voice your concerns at the board meetings. We cannot guarantee that the school board will take action, but we certainly would like to let the board know that even if school were only “a small part of your life,” that does not give anyone the right to neglect the students’ rights and quality of education. Thus, we ask that you add your voice to ours and perhaps your “Yopp!” will become the catalyst for improving the quality of our community’s school district.

There are certain things that you should know about board meetings…

Things that speakers should know:
1. It is recommended that you dress semi formally.
2. There is a 3-minute time limit per speaker and a 21-minute time limit per topic, if you’re planning to tag team with other speakers.
3. You should arrive early in order to fill in the form to speak, which asks for your name, contact information, and what you’ll be speaking about. The form must be handed to Becky Morales, the secretary, once the doors are open.
