E. Public Comment
8. Public Comment

Minutes: 

Chairman Ziegler reminded the speakers that the maximum allotted time for each speaker is three minutes. Clarification of information presented and answers to questions specific to district business will be posted on the School Board's website under the section called " 4 The Record."

Chairman Ziegler continued that the Board feels the boardroom is an extension of the school and therefore if it is not appropriate in school, it is not appropriate conversation  in this venue.

He realized that the majority of the speakers for this evening's meeting were present to speak to the nondiscrimination policies   He made some clarifications. First, the items on the agenda for the policy revisions were not to vote on the specific policies, but to authorize the superintendent to advertise for a public hearing to approve said policies. Therefore, the Board will listen to 10 speakers first and will have an hour's worth of speakers wishing to address the policy revisions prior to the Board voting to move to a public hearing in July.

Chairman Ziegler further clarified that because the majority of the speakers were present to address the nondiscrimination items, he was going to allow the first ten speakers to address topics, but not necessarily  agenda items.

Speakers and topics in order of appearance: 

  1. Michael Leonard - Corridor Busing
  2. Vanessa Skipper- Schools experiencing issues with air conditioning and problems accessing Edline.
  3. Dean Paterakis - Public speakers should not have to wait until after presentations, EDR and other finances, personnel issue. 
  4. John Pilley - Corridor busing, thanked the Board for hiring Dr. Blackburn
  5. Richard Charbonneau - Budget
  6. Tammy Simpson- Bullying issue at Central Middle School. 
  7. Jaritza Vargas -Bullying issue at Central Middle School
  8. Bryan Moore - Opposition to changes in nondiscrimination policies
  9. Ron Powell - Bullying issues at Central Middle
  10. Bob Llewellyn- Harrassment Policy
  11. Denise Sala Gore - LGBT- add the words

------------------------------------------------
Due to a  disruption in the meeting, Chairman Ziegler called for a recess at 6:52 p.m.
He reconvened the meeting at 6:54 p.m.
