The meetings of the Ridgefield Board of Education are defined by Conn. Gen Stat. Sec 1-200 and local considerations are governed by the Ridgefield Board of Education Bylaws (Policy Series 9000).
There is a distinction between a regularly scheduled meeting, a special meeting of the board or an emergency meeting. A quorum of five members is required to conduct business, but fewer can hear discussion items. All meetings are open to the public; they operate under Robert’s Rules of Order, and rules regarding notice, posting of agendas and filing of minutes are in accordance with state statute.
