Update: The Listening Session speaker registration form is open from Friday, November 5 at 9 a.m. through Monday, November 8 at 12:00 p.m. noon.
Beginning October 25, 2021, the Orono School Board will replace the Community Comments period during its Board meetings with a Listening Session preceding each Board meeting. This is a common practice among Minnesota school districts and works well to maintain order and set high standards for civility and respect while welcoming all perspectives. Please visit the Listening Sessions webpage to learn more and review instructions for registering to speak at a Listening Session. The Board will also offer a new livestream option to view the School Board meeting. The Board will also maintain its customary practice of recording and posting School Board meetings on the School Board meeting webpage. Thank you.
