To expedite the Board’s proceedings and provide a framework for the orderly conduct of business, the superintendent in cooperation with the Board president shall prepare an agenda outlining the matters to be brought to Board attention at meetings.


The Board shall follow the order of business set by the agenda unless the order is altered or new items are added in accordance with this policy. At regular and special meetings, the Board may add to or take action on matters not appearing on the posted agenda if the item is reasonably related to the subject matter on the posted agenda or if an exigency exists. Amending the agenda of a regular meeting requires a majority vote of Board members present. All Board members must be present and cast a unanimous vote to amend the agenda of a special meeting.


Consent grouping
