School Board Use of E-Mail
Use of electronic communication (e-mail) by School Board members
shall conform to the same standards of judgment, propriety,
and ethics as other forms of Board-related communication.
The Board shall not use e-mail as a substitute for deliberations
at Board meetings, or for business properly confined to Board
meetings. Communication via e-mail of private or confidential
school district matters is strictly prohibited.
If an e-mail originated by a Board member, is communicated
to a quorum of the Board, and discusses official school district
business, the e-mail will be considered a public document
for purposes of the Right to Know Law, RSA 91-A. As such,
the contents of the email communication shall be publicly
disclosed and included in the minutes of the next regularly
scheduled Board meeting.
