School Board Governance and Operations
Organization of the Board
Their Application and Rules of Conduct
A Board of Education can officially act only at a regular or special meeting in which a quorum is present, and in which every board member has been notified of the date, time, and place of such meeting.
A committee is not the place to officially act. It is a body appointed under policy or bylaws of the board to consider, investigate, and recommend action on specified matters and subjects.
Three types of committees are empowered by the board – Committee of the Whole, standing, and Ad Hoc committees. Ad Hoc committees go out of existence as soon as they have completed specific tasks.
Special committees may be appointed at the discretion of the president of the Board of Education.
