Standards of decorum do apply and anything that is considered an attack on a school division official, school board member, or other elected official will result in you being reprimanded. Citizens will be asked to step down if they discuss anything related to student discipline or a legal matter before the school division.

Closed versus Open Session
Closed versus Open Session
The school board is an elected public body. As such, the public has a right to know what discussions or deliberations our elected officials have. However, sometimes elected officials discuss matters that much be confidential, like deliberations about disciplinary action taken against an individual student, faculty member, or staff member. Because of that, before each school board meeting and at various times throughout the year, the school board will meet in a private session called closed session. There are laws that govern what can and cannot be discussed by school board members in these closed sessions. At the beginning of each school board meeting, school board members certify, by public vote, that nothing was discussed during closed session that should not have been.
For information about what can and can not be discussed in Closed Session, please see this.
