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.
