Meetings of the School Board.
Holleman, I. Thomas, Jr.
The basic function of any school board meeting is the transaction of the official business of the school district. Policies that direct the daily activities of the school are derived through this transaction process. If an understanding of the intricacies, actions, and interactions of each group that participates either directly or indirectly in a school board meeting can be grasped by all concerned, then a school board can conduct its business with dispatch and provide the decisive leadership that school districts desperately need. This document provides information on the major aspects of board meetings--the purpose of the meeting, preparation of the agenda, time and place of meetings, rules of order for meetings, executive versus open sessions, dealing with petitions and delegations, minutes of meetings, board committees, and the relationship between administrative staff members and the board.
