8320: Formulation of Bylaws

The Board’s bylaws are rules designed to organize and control its internal procedures and operations. Some bylaws are in accordance with requirements of statute. Other bylaws may be formulated and adopted by the Board itself as long as they are not inconsistent with any statutes.

In its deliberations leading to the establishment or amendment of its bylaws, the Board’s concern and objective will be the increased efficiency and effectiveness in carrying out its legally mandated tasks and for the best interests of the District in performing its educational responsibilities.

The Board will formulate and adopt a bylaw safeguarding the right of Board members to be informed of and to participate fully in the discussion of each proposed new or amended bylaw. The Board's bylaws shall be amended, repealed or enacted after two readings. The readings shall be at successive regular meetings unless tabled in accordance with Robert’s Rules of Order.
