Any timely (not later than 48 hours prior to the legally required public posting of the agenda) written request from any two (2) Board members for the inclusion of any item on an agenda that does not require the vote of the Board (e.g. any request for information) shall be treated as follows:
(a) The item shall be included on the agenda under the “Request for Future Agenda Items”
section of the agenda.
(b) The item shall be addressed by motion directing the superintendent to prepare an oral
presentation to be included on a future agenda.
