Flagler Beach, Florida- The August 17 Flagler County School Board meeting quickly turned into chaos after members of the community showed up to protest against the district’s policies surrounding COVID-19. Several individuals refused to leave the premises after being given multiple lawful & justified orders to do so. Over an hour into the meeting, school board attorney Kristy Gavin summoned deputies from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office to clear the room of all individuals after the audience became disruptive during public comments. Deputies contacted their department’s administration and legal counsel, who advised them that due to liability reasons, they should avoid asking anyone to leave the premises, and instead find a compromise to the issues that arose surrounding public comments. It took well over an hour for public comments to resume, with a temporary policy that only allowed one individual in the room at a time, allowing for public comment without disruptions. Multiple motions were brought up by vice-chair Conklin, but all failed to be passed. View the raw footage here:
