The local board adopts rules of conduct for its public meetings and publishes these in a prominent manner on its website. No member of the public is to be removed from a meeting unless there is an actual disruption of the proceedings or there is a violation of the rules of conduct established by that board. Visual and sound recordings are permitted at all public meetings of a local board of education.
