Marlon Mitchell started this petition to Unit 4 School Board Members

We, the undersigned residents of Champaign, are concerned at the Unit 4 School Board’s policy of scheduling public comment at the end of their meetings. This amounts to silencing the  community in decisions that greatly impact education in our district.  This means that the Board will take all decisions in their meetings prior to listening to the input from those directly impacted by their decisions. This is undemocratic.

We call upon the Unit 4 board to change their policy in regard to public participation. We recommend all public participation come at the beginning of meetings, before any substantive agenda items are discussed. We ask that Unit 4 follow the practice of the Champaign County Board and allow each individual speaker a maximum of  five minutes with total time for public participation limited to one hour total. We ask that this be implemented with immediate effect.
