Sample Consent Agenda

RATIONALE

A consent agenda allows the Board to approve all the items together without discussion or individual motions.Typical consent agenda items are routine, procedural decisions, and decisions that are likely to be noncontroversial, such as minutes payment of bills, monthly reports/communications, and field trip requests.A consent agenda may be presented by the chairman at the beginning of the meeting.Items may be removed from the consent agenda on the request of any board members.Items not removed may be adopted by general consent without debate.Removed items may be taken up either immediately after the consent agenda or placed later on the agenda at the discretion of the Board.††† In order to start using a consent agenda, the Board should adopt a standing rule for the process.†† A sample is attached for your review.†† This process will be considered for approval at the September meeting.
