Action by the Board regarding the affairs of the District may be taken only when a quorum, a majority of the Board members, is in attendance at the Board meeting.

While Board members are encouraged to attend Board meetings, three members will constitute a quorum and are a sufficient number to transact business of the school corporation.  The adjournment of a meeting may be executed without a quorum.

When Board members cannot attend Board meetings due to illness or appointments away from the District, the Board member may participate in the meeting by electronic means, such as telephone.

An affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast is sufficient to pass a motion or take action unless law or Board policy requires a vote of a greater number.

It is the responsibility of each Board member to attend Board meetings.
