It is the desire of the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board that meetings shall be formal enough for orderly procedure but informal enough to be natural, to encourage free discussion and to promote group thinking and action.


The President may stop any discussion which does not apply to the motion last made.  He/she may also stop the discussion of a matter if the Board has previously agreed to confine discussion to a definite period of time, and that period has been used up.  Aside from such limitation, the President may limit debate only with the concurrence of two-thirds of the members present.


Adopted: December 7, 1976
