12.A.1) 0167.3 - PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AT BOARD MEETINGS
Description: 

Revisions to this bylaw are in line with the recent decision of the U.S. District Court for the 6 Circuit. Some of the optional language has been deleted, so as to remove the authority of the presiding officer at  board meetings where public participation is permitted to regulate speakers on the basis of comments that are "abusive," "frivolous," and/or "harassing." These measures are intended to prevent districts from engaging in viewpoint discrimination for remarks that are oppositional in nature, perceived as hostile to the direction of the board and/or merely offensive. In addition, options (which were deemed acceptable regulations by the Court) have been added for preregistration, including prohibiting individuals from signing up to speak for others. Finally, there are options for districts who live stream meetings to determine whether or not they will facilitate public participation remotely.

13. PUBLIC COMMENTS -  The Cedar Springs Public Schools Board of Education welcomes citizens to speak during the Public Comment portion of the Board of Education Meeting agenda. However, Board of Education practice is to hear the public comment, not to act on the public comment at that time. Concerns brought before the Board of Education during the Public Comment portion of the agenda will be referred to the Superintendent. Those citizens wishing to speak will be allowed a maximum of three minutes each to address their concerns.
