Powers and Duties

The board shall observe and enforce the rules and regulations of the Michigan Department of Education affecting the operation and maintenance of a general powers school district.

The board of a general powers school district shall make reasonable bylaws, policies, and regulations relative to anything necessary for the proper establishment, maintenance, management, and carrying on of the public schools of the district. This includes policies and regulations relative to the conduct of students while in attendance at school or en route to and from school.

The board shall act as a legislative body and shall appraise the work and programs of the district.

The board has expressed, implied, and incidental powers as provided for in the Revised School Code and by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Michigan.

Information regarding public comments during board meetings:

  1. Public participation shall be permitted as indicated on the order of business.

  2. Anyone with concerns related to the operation of the schools or to matters within the authority of the Board may participate during the public portion of a meeting. 

  3. Participants must be recognized by the presiding officer and will be requested to preface their comments by an announcement of their name, address, and group affiliation, if and when appropriate. 

  4. Each statement made by a participant shall be limited to three (3) minutes duration. 

  5. No participant may speak more than once. 

  6. Participants shall direct all comments to the Board and not to staff or other participants. 

  7. The presiding officer may:

    1. prohibit public comments which are frivolous, repetitive, or harassing; 

    2. interrupt, warn, or terminate a participant's statement when the statement is too lengthy, personally directed, abusive, obscene, or irrelevant; 

    3. request any individual to leave the meeting when that person behaves in a manner that is disruptive of the orderly conduct of the meeting;

    4. request the assistance of law enforcement officers in the removal of a disorderly person when that person's conduct interferes with the orderly progress of the meeting;

    5. call for a recess or an adjournment to another time when the lack of public decorum so interferes with the orderly conduct of the meeting as to warrant such action;

    6. waive these rules with the approval of the Board when necessary for the protection of privacy or the administration of the Board's business. 

  8. The portion of the meeting during which the participation of the public is invited shall be limited to thirty (30) minutes, but the timeframe will be extended, if necessary, so that no one's right to address the Board will be denied. (see NEOLA Bylaw 0167.3)

Handling of Complaints

Complaints shall first be considered through proper channels before being considered by the board.  The board shall not hear complaints at an open meeting about named district personnel unless the named person requests the board to hear the complaint at an open session.
