BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County School District just issued strict rules concerning public attendance and comment at school board meetings. The rules are being imposed as “mask” policies again become a hot issue for discussion. Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy, last week, announced that masks will be mandatory for the rest of the school year, then optional for the 2021-2022 school year. Masks are not required outside, and it’s unclear what policy will be in effect for summer school in light of recent CDC guidance.

The school year ends in a matter of weeks, then restarts just seven weeks later.

This is the official language for meeting attendance, issued by the Palm Beach County School District:

Official Palm Beach County School Board Meeting Rules:

“The School District of Palm Beach County supports the peaceful assembly of persons to express themselves regarding matters concerning District students, employees, and the community. Please be respectful of all persons who are present on School District property.

In an effort to keep all participants and District employees safe, everyone must obey all lawful orders issued by law enforcement, which may include remaining or moving to a specific area or location, lowering voices for safety reasons or other safety related commands.

However if such peaceful assembly results in a disturbance, including but not limited to an affray, riot or aggravated riot as defined in Florida Statute 870.01(2021) or mob intimidation as defined in Florida Statute 784.0495 (2021), those persons may be subject to arrest, and shall be held in custody until brought before the Court.

Additionally, please note that persons who enter School District property are subject to video and/or audio surveillance. The School District expressly reserves the right to trespass persons who engage in disorderly conduct on School District property pursuant to Florida Statute 810.08.”
