How many school board members can be on a committee of the board?

Answer: According to BB 9130, “the membership of these committees is limited to less than a majority of the whole School Board;” meaning that any committee should have less board members than would make a quorum.

For example, if your board has 9 members, a committee should only have 5 or less school board members. The committee can have more than 5 members if the additional members are not on the board. 

Committees may (and are encouraged) to also seek input and participation from parents/guardians, staff, community and students, and may consult with local public boards and agencies.
