SCHOOL BOARD BYLAWS

Adoption, Amendment, Repeal or Suspension of Bylaws

  1. Adoption, amendment or repeal of a Bylaw

    Proposed adoption of, or amendment to or repeal of a Bylaw should first be presented to all Members of the School Board in written form on the Information Agenda.

    Adoption of or, amendment or repeal of a Bylaw requires an affirmative vote of seven of eleven of the School Board Members if all School Board Members are present. If less than all the School Board Members are present, then amendment or repeal will require an affirmative vote of one half plus one of the School Board Members present.

  2. Suspension of a Bylaw

    The School Board may suspend a Bylaw(s) or a portion(s) of a Bylaw(s) during a meeting or for short periods of time when the School Board determines that there is good and just cause for the suspension. If all elected and/or appointed School Board Members are notified of the intent to move for such suspension prior to the meeting or if all such School Board Members are present at the meeting when the suspension is proposed, a vote to suspend a Bylaw(s) or a portion(s) of a Bylaw(s) requires an affirmative vote of one half plus one of the School Board Members present at the meeting to pass, rounding up for a fractional member.
