School board approves no text, cell use policy

By From page A5 | February 28, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A new policy for school board members that would not allow them to access email, Twitter, Facebook or any other electronic messages during Fairfield-Suisun School District board meetings won approval Thursday.

The school board passed the protocols after Trustee Pat Shamansky said the measures “address basic, common-sense use of new technology.”

Suisun City resident George Guynn Jr., a regular critic of the school district, called the policy a no-brainer and said he’s glad Superintendent Kris Corey supports the proposal.

Under the new guidelines, anything other than the agenda and corresponding documents may not be accessed during meetings. School board members also may not text or use cellphones in any way.

    Finally, the board did something right! Now, when are they going to teach the truth about history? Especially when it comes to Abraham Lincoln!
