2320 Special Meetings

In an effort to anticipate and respond to special circumstances which may arise during district operations, any member of the Board of Education may call special and/or emergency meetings of the Board. Notice of such meetings will be given at least 24 hours before the date of the meeting to every Board member. If less than a week in advance, public notice of the meeting will be given to the extent practicable.

If, in an emergency, a special meeting is held before the 24-hour notice can be given, each member may be asked to sign a waiver of notice. A statement regarding the time of notice and signature of such forms shall be entered in the minutes.

No other business may come before the Board at a special meeting except those items listed in the legal notice of the meeting.
