The Board will transact all business at official meetings of the Board. The Board recognizes its responsibility to conduct public business in an open and public manner so that patrons are aware of its performance and of its decision in making public policy. Therefore, every meeting, regular, special, or emergency, will be open to the public unless an executive session is held in accordance with state law. The Board will meet in regular open session on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. Except in extreme emergency situations, all meetings pertaining to personnel or personnel policies will be held after 5 p.m.
The Board will announce publicly the dates, times and places of its meetings. The Superintendent will provide notice to the members with copies of the agenda at least four (4) days prior to a regular meeting. Board members will be provided written notice of a special meeting at least twenty-four (24) hours before the meeting takes place. In the event of an emergency meeting, members will be notified by telephone at least two hours before the meeting. Notice will be given to the public at least two (2) hours before the meeting takes place.
