BB 9010 Public Statements

KPBSD Policy Manual

BB 9010

Bylaws of the Board

Any Board member who may wish to criticize or oppose any specific Board action should do so during the Board meeting.

Public statements in the name of the School Board shall be issued by the Board president or, if appropriate, by the Superintendent at the direction of the Board president.  Board members shall not speak as an individual on behalf of the Board, unless authorized.

When Board members express their opinions outside of the Board meeting, it is their responsibility to respect the democratic nature of Board decision-making and always identify personal viewpoints as such.  Board members shall always qualify/disclaim when publicly speaking that they are doing so as an individual, not as a Board representative.
