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.
