In a part of its Dec 8th meeting, the Salem Keizer School Board reviewed a proposal called Safe & Welcoming Schools and a proposal to curb public testimony deemed uncivil, derogatory and included other criteria which the board chair deems inappropriate.  Over the last number of months, public comments on the removal of SROs (police in schools) and the demand for two board members’ resignation have gotten stronger and more persistent. Some comments are directed to specific board members and have been critical of their behavior or affiliation with white supremacist groups.  This report gives a “flavor” for the tenor at the meeting and the issues discussed.
