    The Board of Education may take action on matters properly before it only in public at a regular, special, or emergency meeting, except in those instances where action is permitted by law in executive session.  The authority of the Board of Education may be exercised only as a Board and only at such meetings or closed sessions as are duly and legally constituted. Individual members acting in their individual capacities have no authority to commit the Board of Education or the President to any policy determination or course of action. 

    A quorum of members of the Board of Education shall not communicate among themselves by the use of any form of communication (e.g., personal intermediaries, e-mail, or other technological device) in order to reach a collective concurrence regarding any item that is within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board of Education. In addition, Board of Education members may not use a series of communications by any means or through any person to discuss, deliberate, or take action on any item of business within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board.
