Board Meeting Procedures

It is the general practice of the board to hear and discuss proposals requiring action at one board meeting for a first reading with the proposal returned at the next meeting for action. This practice allows for thorough research and thought and helps to prevent ill-advised, illegal or improper decisions. The superintendent is required to make recommendations in advance of board action on questions brought before the board for their consideration and action.

The Board Finance Committee (comprising three members) reviews major fiscal proposals prior to full board consideration.
