This session will discuss scenarios from actual public meetings. Board Members and Administrators will learn tips and tools from experienced board attorneys and school officials about how to keep it "cool" when a public meeting gets a little “too hot to handle”. We will discuss how to use the law, Board policy, Roberts’ Rules and of course common sense to maintain control. Participants will discuss a series of contentious scenarios and study strategies for managing their own meetings under difficult circumstances when the participants appear unmanageable.
