BDB(LOCAL) - BOARD INTERNAL ORGANIZATION: INTERNAL COMMITTEES

Committee of the Whole

Insofar as possible, matters pertaining to business and educational policy shall be done as a Committee of the Whole. This shall not, however, prevent the Board from voting to allow committees with numbers of less than the whole Board to serve as authorized by the Board.

Standing Committees

The Board may elect to have any number of standing committees as may be deemed necessary. Once established, the President shall appoint members to serve on standing committees. The number of members on each committee may vary, but no standing committee shall have less than two members.

Special Committees

The President shall appoint members to special committees created by the Board to fulfill specific assignments, unless otherwise provided by Board action. The function of committees shall be fact-finding, deliberative, and advisory, but not administrative. Special committees shall report their findings to the Board and shall be dissolved upon completion of the assigned task or vote of the Board.

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 specific authority granted by the Board. To be continuously 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.
