MDCPS Board Rule Number: 6Gx13- 8C-1.171 BOARD MEETINGS--DECORUM

The School Board seeks public input and participation. However, the
public purpose is not served when citizens become disorderly or
disrupt meetings. The Chair may order the removal, from a public
meeting held by the Board, of any person interfering with the
expeditious or orderly process of such meeting, provided the Chair
has first issued a warning that continued interference with the
orderly process of the meeting will result in removal. Accordingly,
the removal process will be designated to the Sergeant-At-
Arms as determined and directed by the Chair. Listed below are some
of the types of actions which may constitute interference with the
expeditious or orderly process of a Board meeting if continued after
the appropriate warning.
1) Using any form of profanity or loud abusive comments.
2) Shouting comments from the audience.
3) Carrying of signs or placards which obstruct the view of
other citizens.
4) Heckling or verbal outbursts in support of or in opposition to
a speaker or his or her remarks.
5) Clapping and applauding which disrupts the meeting.
6) Refusing to yield the podium when the Chair has advised the
speaker that his/her time is up.
7) Expressing comments which do not address the topic to
which the speaker has signed up.
