Jefferson County Board of Education Meeting

The Jefferson County Board of Education holds its first meeting of the year tonight beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Vanhoose Education Center, 3332 Newburg Road, 40218 (at Bishop Lane). While this is an Organizational Meeting where the board will be electing its Chair and Vice Chair for the year, the agenda also includes discussions about Norton Elementary and duPont Manual High schools.  The board allows for public input.  I've copied below the rules for public speaking.  Again, the meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. 

  1. Any person or persons wishing to present a matter to the Board shall register with the secretary of the Board at least fifteen minutes prior to the start of the meeting. The subject of the presentation shall be stated at that time.
  2. Any materials presented to the Board shall be forwarded prior to or following all Board meetings to the Assistant Secretary to the Board for dissemination purposes.
  3. Speakers shall be limited to a maximum of three (3) minutes each and may not share these minutes with any other speaker; however, a person with a medically-recognized disability who is entitled to a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) shall be given an additional minute to speak. The Board shall reserve the right to limit, extend or terminate discussion on any subject.
  4. Undue interruption or other interference with the orderly conduct of Board business cannot be allowed. Defamatory or abusive remarks are always out of order. The Chairperson may terminate the speaker's participation if, after being called to order, the speaker persists in improper conduct or remarks.
  5. Speakers before the entire Board are not allowed to use props, displays, or any other objects during the presentations. However, informational handouts may be given to the Assistant Secretary to the Board and distributed in accordance with Board policy.
  6. Persons within the audience are allowed to have signs in the Board chambers that are no larger than 8 ½ x 11 inches. However, such signs may not be attached to any sort of stick and must be displayed in a manner that does not inhibit others from viewing the Board meeting.
  7. Speakers may not engage in electioneering or the endorsement of any commercial product or service.
