The Board shall act as a committee-of-the-whole on all matters pertaining to the business and educational policies of the district. The Board may appoint standing committees; however, no individual member or group comprised of less than the full membership of the Board shall exercise the powers of the full Board, except in the case of committees appointed by the president to hear appeals in student disciplinary matters.


With the approval or at the direction of the Board, the president of the Board may appoint temporary ad hoc and/or special lay committees to assist the Board.


Final authority in the decision-making process will reside with the Board.


The custodian of records shall maintain a list of policy advisory committees. Any committee appointed by or at the direction of the Board and which is authorized to report to the Board or any advisory committee appointed by or at the direction of the Board for the specific purpose of recommending directly to the Board or the superintendent any policies, policy revisions or expenditure of public funds, will follow the Missouri Open Meetings and Records Act.
