Dallas ISD administration has pulled a proposal to increase efficiency in its public participation process at board meetings. The recommendation was presented to the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees during its regularly scheduled briefing earlier this month.
The proposal was intended to update the board’s public speaking policy BED (Local) by implementing new time limits for agenda items that would allow speakers to continue exercising their right to make public comment, while also allowing the board to efficiently maintain the flow of government. A second reading of the policy was expected during the board’s upcoming Dec. 3 briefing. The policy has been pulled from the agenda.
