The Board of Education recognizes the value of public comment on educational issues and the importance of allowing members of the public to express themselves on District matters.

To permit fair and orderly public expression, the Board shall provide a period for public participation at public meetings of the Board and publish rules to govern such participation in Board meetings and in Board committee meetings.  The rules shall be administered and enforced by the presiding officer of the meeting.

 The presiding officer shall be guided by the following rules:

A. Public participation shall be permitted as indicated on the order of business and/or at a time as determined by the presiding officer.
 B. Anyone with concerns related to the operation of the schools or to matters within the authority of the Board may participate during the public portion of a meeting.
 C. No participant may speak more than once.
 D. Participants shall direct all comments to the Board and not to staff or other participants.
 E. Each statement made by a participant shall be limited to three (3) minutes duration.
 F. The presiding officer may:

1. prohibit public comments which are frivolous, repetitive or harassing;

2. interrupt, warn, or terminate a participant's statement when the statement is abusive, obscene or irrelevant;

3. request any individual to leave the meeting when that person behaves in a manner that is disruptive of the orderly conduct of the meeting;

4. request the assistance of law enforcement officers in the removal of a disorderly person when that person's conduct interferes with the orderly conduct of the meeting;

5. call for a recess or an adjournment to another time when the lack of public decorum so interferes with the orderly conduct of the meeting as to warrant such action.

The Board permits individuals who attend meetings remotely to participate in public participation, subject to the same rules that apply to individuals who attend in person. The Board is not responsible for any technology failures that prevent or disrupt any individual from attending and/or participating remotely.
