Executive Session

CODE: BEC

Maine School Administrative District No. 31

EXECUTIVE SESSIONS

Except as provided by law, all meetings of the School Board shall be open to the public and
all persons shall be permitted to attend the meetings. The Board may hold executive sessions
upon recorded vote of 3/5 of the members present and voting. Any motion to go into executive
session shall indicate the precise nature of the business of the executive session and include a
citation of one or more sources of statutory or other authority that permits an executive session
for that business. Deliberations may be conducted in executive sessions only on those matters
defined in the law. No final action shall be taken in executive session.

By its very nature, the subject matter of executive sessions is highly confidential. It is expected
that all parties to such discussions will respect the need for confidentiality.
