2009 Public Participation at Board Meetings


Public Participation at Board Meetings

The board of education shall hold its meetings in accordance with the Nebraska Open Meetings Act.


The board shall make reasonable efforts to accommodate the public’s right to hear the discussions and testimony presented at its meetings.  The board shall make available at the meeting, for examination and copying by members of the public, at least one copy of all reproducible written material to be discussed in open session of the meeting.


The board may make and enforce reasonable rules and regulations regarding the conduct of persons attending, speaking at, videotaping, photographing, or recording its meetings.  The board may not forbid public participation at all meetings, but the board is not required to allow citizens to speak at each meeting. 


The board shall not require members of the public to identify themselves as a condition for admission to the meeting, nor shall such body require that the name of any member of the public be placed on the agenda prior to such meeting in order to speak about items on the agenda.  However, the board may require members of the public desiring to address the board to identify themselves.


Additional meeting rules may be developed and approved through board action.
