HOOKSETT SCHOOL DISTRICT
BOARD MEMBER AUTHORITY
All powers of the School Board lie in its action as a group. Individual board members may not exercise their authority over District affairs. The Board may, by majority vote, take action at a legal meeting of the Board.
In other instances, an individual board member, including the chairperson, has power only when the Board by vote has delegated authority to him or her.
No legal action can be taken except at a duly posted meeting of the Board and by a quorum acting as a unit.
The decisions of the Board shall be binding until rescinded by the Board at a duly called regular or special meeting.
