2430 – Quorum

Grand Island Public Schools recognizes that action by the board regarding the business of the school district may be taken only when a quorum, a majority of the board membership is in attendance at the board meeting. While board members are expected to attend board meetings, a simple majority of the members (5 of 9) shall constitute a quorum and are a sufficient number to transact business of the school district.

An affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast shall be sufficient to pass a motion or take action unless law or board policy specifically requires a vote of a greater number. The adjournment of a meeting may be executed without a quorum.
