REGULATIONS
 
Series 200 - Board of Directors
 
Work Sessions Code No. 205.3-R
 
The board, as a decision making body, is confronted with a continuing flow of problems, issues and needs which require action.  While the board is determined to expedite its business, it is also mindful of the importance of planning, brainstorming and thoughtful discussion without action.  Therefore, the board may schedule work sessions and retreats in order to provide its members and the administration with just such opportunities.  The board has the authority to hire an outside facilitator to assist them in work sessions.
 
Topics for discussion and study will be announced publicly, and work sessions and retreats will be conducted in open session.  However, no board action will take place at the work session.

205.4 Closed Sessions

F. C. SCHOOL BOARD POLICIES
 
Series 200 - Board of Directors
 
Closed Sessions                                       Code No. 205.4
 
Generally, board meetings shall be open meetings, unless a closed session is provided for by law.  The board shall hold a closed session in the situations stated below.
 
Exceptions to the Open Meeting Law
 
Closed sessions take place as part of an open meeting.  The item for discussion in the closed session shall be listed as part of the tentative agenda on the public notice.  The motion for a closed session, stating the purpose for the closed session, shall be made and seconded during the open meeting.  A minimum of two-thirds of the board, or all of the board members present, must vote in favor of the motion on a roll call vote.  Closed sessions shall be tape recorded and have detailed minutes kept by the board secretary.  Final action on matters discussed in the closed session shall be taken in an open meeting.
 
The minutes and the tape recording will restate the motion made in the open meeting, the roll call vote, the members present, and the time the closed session began and ended.  The tape recordings and the written minute shall be kept for one year from the date of the meeting.  Real estate related minutes and tapes will be made public after the real estate transaction is completed.
 
The detailed minutes and tape recording shall be sealed and shall not be public records open to public inspection.  The minutes and tape recording shall only be opened upon court order in an action to enforce the requirements of the open meetings law. The board has complete discretion as to whom may be present at a closed session.
 
Reasons for the board entering into a closed session from an open meeting include, but are not limited to, the following:
  1. To review or discuss records which are required or authorized by state or federal law to be kept confidential or to be kept confidential as a condition for the board's possession or receipt of federal funds.
  2. To discuss strategy with legal counsel in matters presently in litigation, or where litigation is imminent, if disclosure would be likely to prejudice or disadvantage the board.
  3. To discuss whether to conduct a hearing for suspension or expulsion of a student, unless an open meeting is requested by the student or the parent of the student.
  4. To evaluate the professional competency of an individual whose appointment, hiring, performance, or discharge is being considered when a closed session is necessary to prevent needless and irreparable injury to that individual's reputation and that individual requests a closed session.
  5. To discuss the purchase or sale of particular real estate, but only when premature disclosure could be reasonably expected to increase the price the board would have to pay for the property, or in case of a sale reduce the price the board could receive for the property.
Exemptions to the Open Meeting Law
 
Board meetings at which a quorum is not present, or gatherings of the board for purely ministerial or social purposes when there is no discussion of policy or no intent to avoid the purposes of the open meetings law, are exempt from the open meetings law requirements.  Since gatherings of this type are exempt from the open meetings requirements, they can be held without public notice, be separate from an open meeting, be held without taping the gathering or taking minutes, and be held without a vote or motion.  The board may hold an exempt session for the following:
 
  1. Negotiating sessions, strategy meetings of public employers or employee organizations, mediation and the deliberative process of arbitration;
  2. to discuss strategy in matters relating to employment conditions of employees not covered by the collective bargaining law; and
  3. to conduct a private hearing relating to the recommended termination of a teacher's contract.  However, the private hearing in the teacher's contract termination shall be recorded verbatim by a court reporter.

205.10 Agenda for Board Meetings

F.C. SCHOOL BOARD POLICIES

Series 200 - Board of Directors
 
Agenda for Board Meetings                Code No. 205.10
 
An agenda with appropriate enclosures will be prepared and delivered to each board member by the superintendent or his designee.  These should reach the members of the board sufficiently in advance of the meeting to allow adequate time for study and review.
 
The agenda for each regular and special meeting shall be posted at the District Office at least 24 hours prior to the time of said meeting.  The agenda shall also be widely distributed to staff, to citizens requesting it, and to the news media.
 
Action on any item can take place with items on the agenda as published.   These provisions do not preclude the taking of testimony at regularly scheduled meetings on matters not on the agenda, which any member of the public may wish to bring before the board, provided that no action is taken by the board on such matters at the same meeting at which such testimony is taken.  
 
Individuals or groups who wish to place an item on the agenda should do so by contacting the superintendent.  Requests should include name, address, phone number, organization represented, purpose of the presentation, and pertinent background information.  To be included on the Regular meeting agenda, request must be received by the superintendent no later than six calendar days prior to the meeting.
 
Public Participation in School Board Meetings
 
Citizens who have a place on the agenda may address the board on the issue of their concern during the discussion of that issue.  The presiding officer will recognize these individuals when the item of their concern is addressed during the meeting.  They will be allowed ten (10) minutes to make their comments.
 
Citizens who do not have a place on the agenda may address the board on the issue of their concern by requesting to speak to the board regarding an agenda item.   The presiding officer will recognize these individuals at the appropriate time.  Each individual will be limited to two (2) minutes, a group will be limited to ten (10) minutes, to address the board with their comments.
 
Visitor’s Conduct at the Board Meeting
 
Meetings of the Board of Directors, Forest City Community Schools, follow an agenda prepared by the Superintendent of Schools. 
 
 
A visitor who has been granted permission to speak will have two (2) minutes to express his/her viewpoint, or ask a question regarding matters related to the school system.  It should be pointed out that there is no legal requirement that the public be given this opportunity to speak at board meetings.  It is the policy of the present board to make this time available to residents of the district, but if the pressure of business or other circumstances dictate, the Board President may decide to curtail discussion.  
 
An additional note:  If a resident has a question about the operation of the school district, he/she is encouraged to contact the teacher or administrator closest to the situation.  Experience has shown that this is the best procedure.

F. C. SCHOOL BOARD POLICIES
 
Series 200 - Board of Directors
 
Complaints Before the Board                           Code No. 205.12
 
The Board of Directors strongly believes that all concerns, problems, and complaints about personnel should be resolved at the lowest possible level within the district's structure.  Anyone with a concern or complaint should first contact the person who is the cause of the concern in an attempt to identify, clarify and resolve the differences which are giving rise to the concern or complaint.  Complaints that remain unresolved at the first and subsequent levels may be moved through the chain of authority to the employee's immediate supervisor(s), the superintendent, and finally to the Board of Directors.
 
Appeals will be heard by the board only if the complaint has been moved through the chain of authority.  Complaints taken to the board should be placed on the agenda by contacting the superintendent.  Anonymous complaints shall not be considered.
 
Complaints by Employees
 
Communications, grievances, and complaints from personnel shall first be brought to the attention of the building principal then the Superintendent of Schools before being brought before the Board of Directors.  An employee or group of employees may at any time appeal a decision of the superintendent to the board.
 
Personnel desiring to address the board on any matter shall direct their communication to the Superintendent of Schools and request permission to be placed on the board agenda.  The superintendent will share relevant communications with all board members.
 
Complaints against any employee which arise from within membership of the board, or which come to the attention of the board, except through the superintendent, shall be referred to the Superintendent of Schools for a decision.  In case either the employee or the complaint is not satisfied with the decision of the superintendent, appeal may be taken to the board.

205.14 A Board Meeting-Visitors' Conduct

F. C. SCHOOL BOARD POLICIES
 
Series 200 - Board of Directors
 
A Board Meeting--Visitors' Conduct                   Code No. 205.14
 
Meetings of the Board of Directors follow an agenda prepared by the Superintendent of Schools.  Following the roll call of members, the board proceeds to the items on the agenda.  One of the first items on the agenda is the recognition of visitors and representatives and the recognition of any visitors who may wish to address the board.
 
A visitor who has been granted permission to speak, may make a brief statement, express his viewpoint, or ask a question regarding matters related to the school system.  It should be pointed out that there is no legal requirement that the public be given this opportunity to speak at board meetings.  It is the policy of the present board to make this time available to residents of the district, but if the pressure of business or other circumstances dictate, the Board President may decide to curtail discussion.
 
An additional note:  If a resident has a question about the operation of the schools, he/she is encouraged to contact the teacher or administrator closest to the situation.  Experience has shown that this is the best procedure.  The questioner gets the responses he wants directly; the board is freed to consider more substantive matters.
 
Following the recognition of visitors portion of the meeting, the board proceeds to the other items on the agenda.
