Correct School Board Action on April 9

Every action being taken by the Richland 2 School Board can be called into question - every action since November 13, 2018.

That's when two persons were seated - improperly - on the School Board.

There are five legal members and two "others".

What can the five legal members do?

When the Board convenes at 5:30PM on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, the first motion will be to enter Executive (closed) Session.

The five legal members should vote "No". It is improper to have visitors at the Executive Session. If at least four legal members vote "No", there will not be an Executive Session.

There they can sit and twiddle their thumbs until the public session is scheduled to start at 6:30PM. They cannot discuss official business. Or they might adjourn until 6:30PM, which is the scheduled starting time of the public session.

When the motion is made to convene the public session, if seven are seated (plus the Superintendent), then four of the five (or all five) should again vote No.

If Amelia McKie and Teresa Holmes stand up and leave the front of the room, then the five can vote "Yes" to re-convene and continue with the regular business of the meeting. The Vice Chair will run the meeting.

For McKie and Holmes to be legally on the Board, they must take the oath of office - legally; i.e., after December 4, 2018.
