The School Board may change meeting dates at their discretion. Special/Called Meetings may be scheduled whenever necessary. The Board of Trustees acts as the school district's policy-making body and is the official representative of the people in Groesbeck ISD. The Board functions according to the state and federal laws, the rules and regulations established by the State Board of Education, the Texas Education Agency, and the will of the people as expressed in district elections. While composed of individuals, the seven-member board acts officially only as a group. No member or group of members can act in the name of the Board unless authorized by the Board. A majority of the Board constitutes a quorum for the transaction of business, and individual trustees, serving without pay, are elected for three-year terms on a rotating basis. While candidates run for specific positions on the ballot, they represent the entire district as Board Members.
The Board of Trustees elects a president, vice-president, and secretary to serve one-year terms. It selects and employs the superintendent and delegates the responsibility and authority for the school district's operation to that chief executive officer. The superintendent advises board members on all matters concerning school management.
The regular business meetings of the Board of Trustees are open to the public and are usually scheduled for 6 p.m. each month in the Groesbeck ISD Administrative Office Board Room. Occasionally, a regular meeting date is changed, or a special meeting is called; but in all cases, notice is given. Texas law allows the Board to call an emergency meeting in crisis situations where immediate action is required. In accordance with the Texas Open Meetings Law, the Board has the privilege of meeting privately in a closed meeting to discuss matters related to personnel, student discipline, security, and land acquisition or to consult with legal counsel. However, no action may be taken in an executive session.
An open forum section is normally designated on the agendas allowing individuals to address the Board. However, those wishing to do so must fill out an Audience with the Board form. This form is available at the sign-in desk at the entrance to the Board Room. Completed forms are submitted to the president, who establishes a time limitation for speakers. The president then calls to the podium those wishing to speak. Although Board Members may interrupt a speaker to ask questions or to make comments for clarification, the state prohibits debate, discussion, deliberation, or action on the subject presented unless it's an agenda item. An agenda is posted 72 hours before meetings.
