BD213 - Board Meetings Schedule and Notice


Section: Board of Directors

SubSection: Board Meetings

The Board shall hold regular, annual, organizational, and special/emergency meetings pursuant to Iowa law. Meetings may be formal or informal, and may be held in person or by electronic means in accordance with law. Members gathering for purely ministerial or social purposes when there is no discussion of policy or no intent to avoid the provisions of the Iowa Open Meetings Law shall not constitute a Board meeting.

The Board shall organize at the first regular meeting in December following the regular school election. The meeting shall be called to order by the immediate past chair. If that person is no longer a member, the secretary shall act as temporary chair. The first order of business shall be to swear into office any new members who have not yet been so sworn. The Board shall elect a chair and vice chair, and shall appoint a secretary and treasurer.

A regular meeting schedule for the remaining year (through the following November) shall be adopted at the organizational/annual meeting. It may be amended or changed during the year by Board action.

The secretary shall be responsible for public notification, giving at least 24 hours notice prior to annual, organizational, regular and special meetings. Emergency meetings may be called with less than 24 hours notice, giving as much notice as is reasonably possible, and the nature of the good cause justifying departure from the normal requirements shall be stated in the minutes.
