Lyme School Board

Policy Manual

Policy: BEB
Special Meetings

Occasionally the business of the Board cannot be completed or adequately dealt with at regular meetings requiring special meetings to be called. It is the intent of the Board to allow flexibility for scheduling additional or special meetings and, as with regular meetings, that special meetings allow for full participation of the Board members and the public.

Special meetings shall be called by the Superintendent or his/her designee either when so directed by the Chair or at the formal request in writing of two members of the Board. At least twenty-four hours' notice of special meeting shall be given each member and the meeting notice shall also be posted in accordance with RSA 91-A:2 .

Any action taken at special meetings must have the concurrence of a majority of the entire Board. Any special or emergency meeting without notice shall be valid only if all of the members attend such meeting or waive participation or notice thereof in writing either before or after the meeting.
