Policy BCBZ

The officers of the School Board are a Chair and Vice Chair. The Chair and the Vice Chair are elected annually in July at the organizational meeting of the School Board.

School Board Chair

The duties of the Chair are to preside at all meetings of the School Board, to perform such other duties as may be prescribed by law or by action of the School Board, and to sign all legal documents approved by the School Board.

The Chair, as a member of the School Board, has a vote on all matters before the School Board which come to a vote, but does not have an additional vote as Chair in case of a tie.

Vice Chair

The Vice Chair, if present, shall preside in the absence of the Chair, and is empowered to act in all matters in case of the absence or inability of the Chair to act or as provided by resolution of the School Board. If neither the Chair or Vice Chair is present, a majority of Board members present, if they constitute a quorum, shall elect one from among themselves to chair the meeting.
