4.1. Minutes of March 14, 2022 Regular Meeting
Agenda Item Type:  Consent Item
Rationale:  Section 79-805 of Nebraska Statutes calls for the District to publish in a legal newspaper a "concise summary" of the proceedings of the Board of Education.  Section 84-1413 of Nebraska Revised Statutes calls for the District to maintain official minutes that contain "the substance of all matters discussed."  Therefore, for each board meeting a concise summary of the minutes is published in the Auburn Newspapers and a detailed set of minutes is maintained in the superintendent’s office.  A copy of the official minutes is attached to the board agenda for each regular meeting and special meeting.

The official minutes may make references to attachments.  These attachments are reproduced with the minutes attached to the board agenda only if such attachments are different from those presented at the meeting.  The attachments, however, are in the record of official minutes maintained at the superintendent’s office.

 

4.2. Agenda **
Agenda Item Type:  Consent Item
Rationale:  According to the Open Meeting Laws, the Board of Education may add to the agenda only those items of an emergency nature [see, Section 84-1411(1) of Nebraska Revised Statutes].

The Board may enter into closed session at any time to discuss any matter for which a closed session is lawful.

The Board may take action on any item listed on the agenda.

The agenda for the meeting needs to be approved before the board can address the discussion and/or action items.

Rationale:  The Board President may limit the time allotted to each individual or topic. A five-minute limit will apply for each speaker, unless otherwise specified. According to  LB 83, all speakers must identify himself or herself, including an address and the name of any organization represented by such person unless the address requirement is waived to protect the security of the individual. Speakers are expected to address the Board when making presentations. If a group of patrons is presenting a single issue, the board requests that a spokesperson be appointed to address the Board, however anyone may talk within the stated time limit. Speakers who feel a need to give more information than can be presented in that time frame may submit written material for distribution to the Superintendent; such materials should be provided at least 24 hours before the meeting is to begin.


The Board of Education may make and enforce reasonable rules and regulations regarding the conduct of persons attending its meetings and regarding their privilege to speak. The board is not required to allow citizens to speak at each meeting, but it may not forbid public participation at all meetings (see Section 84-1412 of Nebraska Revised Statutes).
