Parliamentary Procedure: Board Rules of Order
Recently Revised Policy 1400 calls for the board to use Robert's Rules of Order (Revised) as a guide, except when such rules are superseded by Board Rules of Order.
Considering the training on Robert's Rules that our board hosted and attended it is a good time to review the use of Robert's and identify modifications that the Board may wish to make to Robert's for effective meeting management. Attached is an example from a school district in Minnesota where the rules have been clearly stated and/or amended.
There are many topics that the Board may wish to discuss that will guide staff in writing a draft set of meeting rules of order.
Use of a "second"
Recording of meeting in "minutes" (two documents from Ms Mcfarlane attached)
Approval of meeting minutes
