Executive Sessions

BDC Maine School Administrative District No. 31


Except as provided by law, all meetings of the 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, and the motions to go into executive session shall
indicate the nature of the business of the executive session. 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 unless and/or until the
information appropriately becomes public.
