FAIRFIELD — Proposed new protocol for school board members would not allow them to access email, Twitter, Facebook or any other electronic messages during meetings of the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District.
Anything else – other than the agenda and corresponding documents – would not be accessed either, according to the policy the board takes up Thursday. School board members would not text or use cellphones in any way.
“Board members will respect all speakers during board meetings and avoid distracting conduct, such as sharing information with others during any given discussion, whether it be in hard copy or electronic format,” the policy proposal reads. “The public has a right to expect the board to give appropriate attention.”
A school board subcommittee completed the new protocol on use of technology at meetings.
School district Superintendent Kris Corey recommends approval of the policy.
Trustees meet at 6 p.m. at the school district central office, 2490 Hilborn Road, Board Room No. 108, in Fairfield.
