The Board of Education has approved changes to be made to HF-L Policy 3220 – Public Expressions at Meetings, during the Tuesday, November 23, 2021, board meeting.
The amendments can be found most notably in the Decorum, Civility, & Respect for other speakers section of the policy to note that the Board is responsible for the orderly conduct of the meeting and has the right to discontinue any comment or presentation that violates Board policy and/or the District’s Code of Conduct.
Policy is defined as a basic plan of action. It establishes limits within which freedom of judgment can be exercised. Policy is a governing principle of management. It is a statement that influences the interests of those who come under its jurisdiction. A policy may originate from the constitution, from statute, from local determinations, and/or from customary patterns of formal behavior.
In addition to the adopted policies, the operation of the School District is governed by and subject to all applicable Laws, Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, Civil Service requirements, Board of Education Resolutions, School Administrative Regulations, and Contracts of Agreement. If any part of the District’s policies become invalid by judicial decision or legislative or administrative enactment, all other parts shall remain in full effect unless and until they are amended or repealed by the Board of Education. The official record of the adoption, amendment, or repeal of the by-laws and policies of the Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District shall be the minutes of the meetings of the Board of Education.
