SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS
The MSAD #11 Board will hold its regular business meetings at 7:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month. If this date falls on a holiday, the scheduled meeting will be held the following Thursday. The MSAD #11 Board reserves the third Thursday for each month for Bimonthly meetings.
A meeting of the MSAD #11 Board is a meeting that is held to address important matters that arise between regular meetings and/or require MSAD #11 Board action before the time set for the next regular meeting, or to consider a single complex or controversial subject in one session.
A special meeting may be called at the discretion of the Chair or at the request of the Superintendent. A special meeting shall be called at the written request of a majority of members of the MSAD # 11 Board.
The Superintendent shall be responsible for providing notice of any special meeting to MSAD #11 Board members and the media at least 72 hours in advance of the meeting. The notice or agenda shall indicate the subject(s) of the meeting and action to be taken.
No business other than that stated in the notice of the meeting shall be transacted unless the Board agrees by a majority vote to consider other business.
An emergency meeting of the MSAD #11 Board is a meeting that is called because a matter is so urgent that it must be addressed immediately and the advance notice required for a special meeting cannot reasonably be provided.
An emergency meeting may be called by the Chair or at the request of the Superintendent.
Whenever practicable, 24 hour advance notice will be provided. The Superintendent shall notify the media of an emergency meeting by the same or faster means as used to notify
MSAD #11 Board members. The notice shall indicate the purpose of the meeting.
No business may be transacted other than that related to the purpose for which the emergency meeting is called.
Executive sessions of the MSAD #11 Board shall be called and conducted in accordance with state law. Only the matter(s) stated in the motion to enter executive session shall be considered. No final action may be taken in executive session.
Workshops and Informational Meetings
The MSAD #11 Board, at its discretion, may schedule workshops and other meetings to discuss a particular subject or proposal or to gather input from staff, community, or other groups.
No formal action shall be taken by the MSAD #11 Board at any meeting other than a regular meeting, special meeting, or emergency meeting.
