Adopted: March 9, 2010
To expedite the Board's proceedings and provide a framework for the orderly conduct of business, the superintendent in cooperation with the Board president, after consultation with the agenda setting committee, shall prepare an agenda outlining the matters to be brought to Board’s attention at meetings. The agenda setting committee shall consist of the president, vice-president, and a third board member, typically the treasurer of the board, and the superintendent. The president shall serve as chair of the committee.
The Board shall follow the order of business set by the agenda unless the order is altered or new items added by vote of the Board during the meeting. The Board may add to or take action on matters not appearing on the printed agenda at regular meetings only by majority vote of Board members present. Items may be added to the agenda of a special meeting only when all Board members are present and cast a unanimous vote.
A consent grouping on the agenda shall be used for those items which usually do not require discussion or explanation as to the reason for Board action. Any Board member may request the withdrawal of any item under the consent grouping for independent consideration.
The order of business at regular meetings shall be as follows:
- Call to order
- Roll call
- Executive Session (if needed)
- Pledge of allegiance
- Announcement of Board procedures
- Superintendent’s report
- Student Accountability Advisory Committee and District Accountability Committee reports (if needed)
