Communicate with the School Board

  • The school board is grateful for the St. Louis Park community members who join together to care about the welfare of all students, their education and future.
     
    Community members are invited to share ideas and opinions with the school board in the following ways:
     
    School Board Message Line
    Please call the School Board Message Line at 952-928-6040 with your questions or comments. All school board members will hear your call; one board member will return your call. Please be sure to clearly pronounce your name and provide your phone number.
     
    Open Forum
    The school board has an Open Forum at the second meeting of each month, beginning at 7 p.m. All school board meetings, unless noted otherwise, are held in room C350 at the High School. Room C350 is located on the third floor of the circle section of the High School.

    Those wishing to speak to the school board are requested to sign-in. Comments are limited to three minutes per person about a topic, not about an individual. Comments of a disrespectful or personal nature directed at an individual by name or inference will not be permitted. Personnel concerns should be directed first to the individual, then to the principal or program director, the assistant superintendent, superintendent and finally, in writing, to the school board.
     
    Postal Mail and E-mail
    You may also send your questions or comments to the school board in writing via postal mail or e-mail. Postal mail should be directed as follows:
