Per School Committee Policy BEDH, Public Comment will be governed by the following rules:

    1. At the start of each regularly scheduled School Committee meeting, individuals or group representatives will be invited to address the Committee. The Chairperson shall determine the length of the public participation segment.
    2. Speakers will be allowed three (3) minutes to present their material. The presiding Chairperson may permit extension of this time limit.
    3. Topics for discussion must be limited to those items listed on the School Committee meeting agenda for that evening.
    4. Improper conduct and remarks will not be allowed. Defamatory or abusive remarks are always out of order. If a speaker persists in improper conduct or remarks, the Chairperson may terminate that individual’s privilege of address.
    5. All remarks will be addressed through the Chairperson of the meeting.
    6. Speakers may offer such objective criticisms of the school operations and programs as concern them, but in public session the Committee will not hear personal complaints of school personnel nor against any member of the school community.
