Limits of Board Members Authority

A Board member is a part of the governing body which represents and acts for the community as a whole. Apart from the normal function as part of the unit, the Board member has no individual authority. No individual member of the Board, by virtue of holding office, shall exercise any administrative responsibility with respect to the schools; nor, as an individual, command the services of any school employee. Individually, the Board member may not commit the District to any policy, act or expenditure.

Individual Board members shall submit requests for research or administrative studies to the entire Board for consideration.

(cf. 6162.8 - Research)
(cf. 9322 - Agenda/Meeting Materials)

Board members who visit schools of their own volition have no more authority than any other citizen. Board members have authority only in regularly called meetings of the Board, or when delegated specific tasks by Board action.

(cf. 1260 - Visits to the Schools)

A Board member must resign from the Board before formally applying for District employment.

Board member participation as an officer in organizations supporting student activity shall have approval of the Board.
