2413 - Work Sessions and Retreats

The Grand Island Schools Board of Education may, as needed or desired, schedule work sessions and retreats in order to provide its members and the administration with the opportunity to conduct planning, research, and thoughtful discussions without taking immediate action. The board has the authority to hire an outside facilitator to assist them in these work sessions.

Topics for discussion and study will be announced publicly, and works sessions and retreats will be conducted in open session. Work sessions are considered open board meetings for which all of the requirements of the open meetings law apply as well as the requirement that board minutes be published. However, no board action will take place at the work session.
