Teachers made their frustrations known at the Bakersfield City School District board meeting Tuesday.

Many were seen with signs, including ones that said, “Teachers just wanna have funds,” and, “Ya done messed up BCSD." Other participants wore red shirts.

During the meeting, the board voted unanimously to approve revisions to the district’s policies on meeting conduct that reduces the time for an individual to speak from five minutes to three minutes during the public comment period.

In addition, the board voted to allow the president to revoke speaking privileges for conduct that is disruptive or threatens the safety of anyone at a meeting as well as increase or decrease the time allowed for public comment depending on the topic and the number of people wishing to be heard.
