Special meetings may be convened by the chair, upon request of three board members, or by common consent of all or a majority of the board members. Special meetings are those meetings not on the calendar set by the board at the July organizational meeting. Local news media will receive written notice of the meeting at least 24 hours in advance.
Work sessions are special meetings in which the board meets but does not intend to take any action. Work sessions enable the board to gather information and discuss and review various aspects of an issue.
Emergency meetings are called only in the event of an actual emergency, and no business other than that related to the emergency can be discussed. Appropriate notice will be given to the public and the media, generally by email or phone. (Board policy BD/BDA)
