The Board of Education may, as needed, establish committees whose membership will consist of members of the Board. The president of the Board shall serve as an ex-officio member of all committees to which he/she is not appointed. Board committees shall undertake studies and make reports as charged by the Board, but shall not act on behalf of the Board. Also, any existing standing Board committee (i.e., audit, business practices, communications, and policy) must comply with the Open Meetings law which includes providing public notice of such meetings, holding the meetings in public, and utilizing executive session if applicable.
The Board may establish standing or ad hoc committees and reserves the right to terminate any committees at any time.
Any official policy-level action is the sole discretion of the Board. The Board is in no way obligated to follow committee recommendations. The Board has the right to accept, reject, or modify all or any part of a committee recommendation.
