  • Except on procedural matters, all votes of the School Committee will be taken by a voice vote and the ayes and nays will be recorded in the minutes; if the vote is unanimous only that fact need be recorded.

    All actions will require a majority vote of all members present and voting except as state law, Robert's Rules of Order, Newly Revised, or policies of this Committee require a larger majority. A majority of the members of the School Committee will constitute a quorum.

    A two-thirds vote will be required to suspend parliamentary rules of order.
