School Board Member Cristina Diaz-Torres to Host Virtual Open Office Hours on March 20

School Board Member Cristina Diaz-Torres will host virtual Open Office Hours on March 20, from 5:30–7:30 p.m.

For the 2022-23 school year, the School Board will hold Open Office Hours twice a month on Mondays when school is in session unless otherwise noted. Open Office Hours are not held during Winter or Spring Break or over the Summer. Open Office Hours is a forum for Board members to listen to comments and concerns and to discuss various topics with community members. Each Board member will share what they heard during Open Office Hours with the entire Board and the Superintendent.

  • Personnel matters are confidential. Visitors are asked to respect that confidentiality; the School Board member cannot comment nor offer their individual opinion on such matters. This silence should not be an indication of any particular position on the matter.
  • Statements that personally attack individuals or do not relate to Arlington Public Schools’ business are inappropriate for discussion. You will be asked to limit your remarks to Arlington Public Schools’ business issues.

Board members will meet individually with participants to ensure everyone has the same opportunity to share their opinions. To participate, individuals must sign up ahead of time using the SignUpGenius link below and select a time slot for an individual meeting. The sign-up link will be available until 3 p.m. on March 20.

Before Open Office Hours:

During Open Office Hours:

  • Participants will have 5 minutes to address the Board member
    • At the end of the 5 minutes, the individual meeting will end so that the Board member can move on to the next participant
  • Participants are expected to be courteous, respectful, and mindful of the 5-minute timeframe.  If a participant is disruptive, it may be necessary for the Board member to end the meeting early

After Open Office Hours:

  • Participants are welcome to share their comments in writing by sending them to board@apsva.us. A copy of the remarks will be distributed to all Board members.
