Called Board Meetings that are for informational purposes/work sessions only will not have minutes.

SCSBA Board and Board Member Standards

The standards support the SCSBA mission statement and its two objectives: to have all school boards establish and achieve the highest expectations of their communities and to have all school board members perform their duties of governance at a level of excellence established by SCSBA.
