    4. RESOLUTION ON ANTI-RACISM AND SUPPORT FOR RACIAL JUSTICE
     

    WHEREAS, the Clinton Board of Education acknowledges and hears a rallying cry for racial justice in our country; and

    WHEREAS, we recognize and celebrate the value of a racially diverse school community; and

    WHEREAS, we recognize and support the ability of people to peacefully express themselves and legally protest; and

    WHEREAS, the education of our children in the Clinton Schools can be a part of the solution to the pain and injustice caused by discrimination, racial bias, harassment, and negative stereotyping towards any person or group; and

    WHEREAS, we are committed to eliminating racial bias, both other peoples and our own; and

    WHEREAS, we do not see one racial identity group as superior to another racial identity group; and

    WHEREAS, we will actively work, support, and advocate for institutional practices and policies that disrupt and dismantle systemic oppression, and commit to fostering racial equity within our schools; and

    NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, upon the recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools, that the Clinton School District Board of Education strongly supports the implementation of practices, programs, and curriculum to ensure a culture that values kindness and empathy, embraces racial diversity, and fosters inclusivity and racial equity for all.

    In light of issues regarding racial injustice that are consuming our country and the world at this time, we felt it is appropriate to clarify our related commitments and beliefs.

     

    5. PUBLIC TO BE HEARD

    The Board encourages public participation on school related matters at Board meetings.  To allow for this, a period of not more than 30 minutes shall be set aside at each Board meeting.  Speakers shall limit their comments to no more than 5 minutes.  The Board will not permit, in public session, discussion involving District personnel or students.  All speakers are to conduct themselves in a civil manner.  Questions and comments from the public concerning matters which are not on the agenda will be taken under consideration and referred to the Superintendent for appropriate action.  If the Board considers a topic extraordinary and requires a discussion taking longer than 30 minutes, the Board will consider designating a separate forum dedicated to that topic.

    The Board Meeting is a meeting held in public, not a public meeting.  While this is an opportunity to speak directly to the Board of Education, please do not expect reciprocal dialogue with the board members or superintendent at the meeting.  If you would like such dialogue, please contact the superintendent. 

    Members of the public can call into the number provided or indicate their desire to speak via chat room.

    12.  QUESTIONS BY THE BOARD OF EDUCATION


    This is an opportunity for board members to have dialogue with one another and/or ask for and provide information.

    13.  EXECUTIVE SESSION AND ADJOURNMENT

    The information below describes conditions necessary for an executive session to be called.

    Because school boards are public bodies, all meetings of a quorum of the board must be open to the public except where an executive session is properly convened for certain reasons authorized by law. While the Open Meetings Law lists eight reasons, the most common grounds invoked by school boards are to discuss:

    Proposed, pending or current litigation.
    Collective negotiations pursuant to article 14 of the Civil Service Law.
    The medical, financial, credit or employment history of a particular person or corporation, or matters leading to “the appointment, employment, promotion, demotion, discipline, suspension, dismissal or removal of a particular person or corporation.”
    The reasons are stated before the Boards votes to enter into executive session.
