(b) The President of the ASSOCIATION shall have the right to speak at BOARD meetings on any item of concern to members at a time designated by the BOARD.
The BOARD proposed removing this section which gives the teachers association the right to appoint a teacher to represent them on district wide committees – for example like the one that is currently considering arming teachers with guns. They want to take a group of stakeholders that offers incredible insight and is directly impacted by almost any district wide committee and simply shut them out as they see fit. This also shuts out the community as the teachers can no longer inform the public about the issues facing the district.
