    Public Participation Etiquette

     

    The public participation portion at Board of Education meetings is not the forum to directly critique staff members, but rather, an opportunity to comment on old or new Board of Education business.

    While First Amendment rights always exist, this forum is not the correct venue to express discontent toward specific and named employees. The Board of Education, in its capacity and, in particular, a Board of Education meeting, is not the proper channel to deal with, communicate, or seek absolute remedy related to such matters.

    Student and staff confidentiality is taken seriously, and concerns must be directed toward the proper authority responsible for resolution. The district works best in the use of the chain of command that governs our day-to-day decision-making. The chain of command acknowledges the need to solve issues at the lowest level, which also does not discourage parents from expressing their upset or from seeking resolution. While it does afford parents the opportunity to bring issues past the teacher to the immediate supervisor or principal, and ultimately, to our Central Office administrators, this type of communication is best when rooted in reason, common courtesy, and civility. The Board of Education is charged with ensuring efficiency of the district and adherence to policy and procedure.

    We support the equal right to a positive, safe, and enriching experience for all our students and our staff.
