Board committee meetings and Board workshops shall be considered special meetings and shall require legal posting of the agenda and the time and place of the meeting. In the event a quorum of the Board's membership shall be in attendance at any posted committee meeting or Board workshop, official minutes shall be kept or a legal recording of the discussion shall be made, as required by Government Code, Chapter 551. [See BE]

The President of the Board and the Superintendent shall be ex officio members of all Board committees, unless otherwise provided by Board action.

Transacting Business

Committees may transact business only within the specific authority granted by the Board. To be binding, all such business must be reported to the Board at the next regular or special meeting for approval and entry into the minutes as a public record.
