204.13 - Quorum of the School Board

The majority of the full membership of the Board of Directors constitutes a quorum and must be present for the transaction of business, either in-person or electronically.

An affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast is sufficient to pass a motion or take any action; unless law or board policy requires a vote of a greater number. The adjournment of a meeting may be executed without a quorum.

The affirmative vote of two-thirds of the entire membership of the board, or the affirmative vote of all members present at a meeting where a quorum but not the entire board is present, is required before the board can go into closed session.
