F.4.a.1) Policy 2:230 - Public Comments at Board of Education Meetings.    
1 question needs to be answered.  See the description below.  
Description:  *Question 1.

Consult with the board attorney for guidance before adopting a maximum time limit for public participation; public comment rules are frequently challenged. The Ill. Public Access Counselor (PAC) has issued only unpublished, non-binding opinions approving of 30- and 60-minute overall time limits for public comment under OMA. The PAC has issued a binding opinion finding that a public body violated OMA when, pursuant to an unrecorded rule, it limited public comment on a controversial topic to 15 minutes. Public Access Opinion (PAO) 19-2. The PAC noted that while the lack of an adopted policy on the time period for public comment did not "necessarily mean that public comment must be allowed to continue indefinitely," the public body presented "no evidence that limiting comments was necessary to maintain decorum or that extending the comment period would have unduly interfered with the orderly transaction of public business."

If the Board would like to establish a maximum time limit for public participation, IASB will revise the first sentence of the paragraph as follows:

For a maximum of 60 minutes Dduring each regular and special open meeting of the Board, any person may comment to or ask questions of the School Board (public participation), subject to the reasonable constraints established and recorded in this policy’s guidelines below. The time limit for public participation at a meeting may be extended upon the majority vote of the Board members at the regular or special meeting.

If a board wants to establish a time limit other than 60 minutes, substitute with the time limit desired. Note that any extension of a public comment period cannot be based on the viewpoint of a speaker(s).

Would the Board like to establish a maximum time limit for public participation?

 No (default)
 Yes, the Board would like to establish a maximum time limit of 60 minutes.
 Yes, the Board would like to establish a time limit other than 60 minutes. What time limit has the board established? (Enter the number of minutes.)

2 questions need to be answered.  See the description below.  
Description: 
*Question 1.

The School Code mandates this provision for certificated [licensed] employees serving witness duty. 105 ILCS 5/10-20.7. Despite the statute’s limitation to licensed employees, many boards apply this language to educational support personnel.

Would the Board like to apply this language to both licensed and educational support personnel?

 No (default)
 Yes (IASB will strike "licensed" from the text and correct the grammar.)
*Question 2.

The School Code mandates this provision for certificated [licensed] employees serving jury duty. 105 ILCS 5/10-20.7. In contrast, the Jury Act requires that employers give any employee time off from employment for jury duty, but it does not require that employers pay the employee while on jury duty. 705 ILCS 305/4.1. Despite the statute’s limitation to licensed employees, many boards apply this language to educational support personnel.

Would the Board like to apply this language to both licensed and educational support personnel?

 No (default)
 Yes (IASB will strike "licensed" from the text and correct the grammar.)
