5:15 p. m. in the District Administration Building located at 138 College St, Tenaha, Texas.

following members of the board of trustees are present:  (call their names)
 
Robert Barton; Aaron Roland; Ronald Samford; June Swint; Vicki Jernigan; Mike Ogden.

OPEN FORUM ANNOUNCEMENT
 
The Board will now hear comments from those persons who have signed up to 
 
speak. This hearing is for parents, students, and community members to speak to 
 
the board regarding the school district’s federal programs. Each person may speak 
 
for no more than five minutes.
 
During the hearing, the Board will listen, but it is forbidden by the Texas Open 
 
Meetings Act from discussing any topic raised or making any decision unless that 
 
matter is already on the agenda.
 
The Board reminds speakers that this hearing is not the time or place to bring the 
 
Board complaints about a particular program or a particular employee. The Board 
 
has adopted specific complaint policies and specific procedures for presenting 
 
those complaints. Those policies require a written complaint, administrative 
 
conferences, and a request that the item be placed on the agenda of a Board 
 
The Board will not entertain complaints or criticisms about individual 
 
employees or other complaints during this hearing. If I, as presiding officer, 
 
determine that a presentation during this hearing is a complaint about an individual 
 
school employee or any other matter, I will respectfully ask that person to stop 
 
speaking and to use the board’s adopted policies and procedure for bringing 
 
complaints or concerns to the board as a matter placed on the agenda of a future 
 
The Board expects that request to be honored and that the person expressing a 
 
complaint will stop when asked. The Board expects all members of the audience to 
 
behave in a polite and orderly fashion during this and all other portions of the 
 
Tenaha Independent School District
