How To Conduct Effective School Board Meetings.
Allen, Robert E.
To conduct effective school board meetings, thirteen basic rules are presented. The rules prescribe that agendas and minutes should be studied prior to meetings; that meetings should be informal, open to citizens, and paced to avoid boredom and wasted time; that attorneys' reports should be in writing, and that the attorney should participate only on legal matters; that special presentations should be made early on the agenda; that citizens should participate in the discussion of regular agenda items with administrators on hand to respond; and, that the board chairman should control the meeting allowing equal participation of the members.
