Comments from the Audience

Recommended Posts

Guest Bob Cantu

Our school board of 5 memebers doesn't always want the audience (teachers) to comment during discussion of the agenda items. The teachers get a 'teacher report' at the begining of the meeting, but when they talk about items on the agenda during the meeting to be voted on or just be discussed we are not sure of the protocal. Is there a time limit for comments, either per person or in general? And I assume people are called on by the board, but the board must allow comments? Our new board president wants to keep the meeting very breif and doesn't value teacher input and we want to be ready!

As far as Robert's is concerned, your teachers would be considered staff. As far as being allowed to speak in debate, they are not members of the assembly (board) and may only do so as permitted by the assembly (board).

However, many jurisdictions (states) have laws that may incidentally supercede Robert's in this area. Check with your board's attorney.
