Public Comment Resumes At NACS Meetings

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO):  About two dozen people sat quietly in an elementary school cafeteria Monday as their elected leaders conducted Northwest Allen County Schools business without incident or interruption.

According to the Journal Gazette, the respectful tone continued as four audience members approached the microphone and addressed the five-member school board in person for the first time in months. The board which has attracted disruptive, unruly audiences in the last year, shifted to a virtual format back on October 13th, and it held its first meeting without public comment on September 27th. The board restructured its meetings because of increased safety concerns during and after meetings.

Those wishing to speak were told public comment would be limited to 30 minutes unless extended by a majority of the board, with each person limited to two minutes.


  1. What’s the point in parent comment. None of the board members listen to what any of the parents have to say, nor is there an avenue for parents to receive feedback from their “Elected Officials”. Now their “Elected Officials” are further limiting the comment time. The sounds about right.

    I’m sure they will never get rid of, or even address the fact that Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is being taught at Carroll (SEL is a form of Critical Racism Theory). But at least NACS still gets that additional school funding…
