Carroll school board tables decision on limiting number of speakers and topics at public meetings

September 16, 2022

In an effort to add more transparency to its Citizen Participation Policy for public school board meetings, the Carroll County Board of Education opted not to vote Wednesday night on policy changes and instead asked staff to tweak certain sections of it. Ten people spoke against the policy changes Wednesday night and the school board received numerous emails from the public during the last month, stating opposition to changes that included limiting the number of speakers at each meeting to 15 and allowing the board president to decide who could speak at meetings when requests exceeded the maximum 15.
