WSSDA's Guide to Parliamentary Procedures. Revised
Randolph, Mary
Washington State School Directors' Association (NJ1)
This guide to parliamentary procedures is presented by the Washington State School Directors' Association (WSSDA) for use by local school boards within the State of Washington. Parliamentary law and parliamentary procedure is the key to order and to provide justice and fairness to all. Through both formal and informal parliamentary procedures, business meetings can be conducted in a thorough, orderly fashion, yet retain a democratic process. This manual will provide the basic concepts and guidelines, however, individual circumstances may fall under other rules of the parliamentary authority and the reference numbers should be accessed to clarify any complex situation. Proper parliamentary procedure expedites the business and makes the most constructive use of limited time. All school board members should familiarize themselves with parliamentary rules and how to appropriately use either these rules, or special rules that have been approved by the board, or the parliamentary authority adopted by the board. [Revision based on Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (RONR), 10th Edition.]
