Policy 8710 – Regular School Board Meetings

Annually at the organizational meeting, the School Board shall set the time and place of regular Board meetings. The schedule of regular meetings so made shall remain in effect until the fourth Monday in April of the following year, unless changed by a majority vote of the School Board during the year. The Board may also eliminate scheduled meetings as long as at least one regular School Board meeting is held each calendar month.

Regular meetings shall be scheduled to take place on District property or virtually when deemed appropriate. Advanced notice shall be given for all regular Board meetings in accordance with state law and School Board policy.

Unless changed by majority vote, the order of business at regular School Board meetings shall follow the agenda. No new items of business shall be taken up after 10:00 p.m. unless approved by a majority vote of those members present at the meeting. If the agenda is not completed, the remaining items will be continued at a predetermined date and time unless another meeting date and time is set by a two-thirds vote of the School Board members present.

New business not on the regular School Board meeting agenda may not be discussed or acted upon, except for emergency items as allowed by law.

The School Board may discuss any matter raised by the public during the public comment period if such period is included in the notice of the meeting.
