The presiding officer shall listen to the comments, as long as they are relevant to Board policy. Members of the public shall maintain a respectful decorum toward all present at all times.
As per Board Policy 9130 (Public Complaints and Grievances), any misunderstandings or disputes between the public and school district staff should, whenever possible, be settled by direct, informal discussions among the interested parties. It is only when such informal meetings fail to resolve differences that more formal procedures should be employed at the school level. Only those matters that cannot be resolved at the school level should be brought to the attention of the Superintendent who will investigates the concern, or assign a staff member to do so. The presiding officer will cease all public comments that do not adhere to this policy, and refer persons making such comments to the Superintendent.
As per Board Policy 0142 (Board Member Qualifications, Prohibited Acts, and Code of Ethics), the Board members will refer all complaints to the Superintendent and act on complaints at public meetings only after failure of an administrative solution.
