Wash. Admin. Code § 148-100-020 - Meetings-Board agenda-Communication

Current through Register Vol. 22-07, April 1, 2022

(1) Anyone, other than a board member or a representative of the executive director's office wishing an item placed on the agenda of a board meeting, must have a written request to the board secretary, executive director's office, no later than twelve o'clock noon twelve business days before the next scheduled meeting of the board. The secretary will relate the request to the chair of the board as soon as feasible. The chair will determine whether the item is to be placed on the agenda. The chair or designee will notify the individual initiating the request as to whether or not the item will be placed on the agenda.
(2) All materials to be considered by the board must be submitted in sufficient quantities to provide each member of the board and the secretary with appropriate copies. To allow the board to have the benefit of background information and research, the executive director shall be given an opportunity, whenever possible, to review and evaluate all materials prepared for consideration by the board prior to submission to the board. The executive director shall also have the opportunity to make recommendations prior to a decision by the board on the matter.
(3) Proposed new policies and/or changes in policy will be presented first to the board of trustees as a report. Board action will usually be taken at a subsequent meeting. If expedient action on the matter would clearly be beneficial to the school, the board may consider taking action at the time the policy is first presented to the board.
(4)
(a) Each regular meeting of the board shall provide members of the public an opportunity to address the board on any item of business. Groups and individuals are to submit their statements in writing to the board secretary, executive director's office, whenever possible no less than two weeks prior to the time of the meeting. The board encourages groups to designate a spokesperson to address the board on their behalf.
(b) The chair of the board reserves the right to determine time limits on statements and presentations.
(c) The intent of the board shall be to provide equal time for opposing presentations. The chair also maintains the right to regulate the subject matter of that which may be presented or discussed at the open meeting including, but not limited to, matters which are the subject of current or pending grievances or adjudicative or disciplinary proceedings. Matters for consideration, discussion, and/or debate will be limited to the extent allowed by the Open Public Meetings Act, chapter 42.30 RCW.
