BOE holds Special Meeting

A special meeting of the USD 211 Board of Education was held on Tuesday, February 8 @ 1:00 p.m.

At the January 10 BOE meeting, BOE Member volunteers were requested to attend an informational meeting with Mr. Joe Hurla of the “Energy 360” company at 1:00 p.m. on February 8. The purpose of the meeting with Mr. Hurla would be to go over potential savings possible in USD 211 as the result of upgrades in the energy efficiency of the District’s facilities and to also discuss the possibility of having an Investment Grade Audit completed in USD 211 by the “Energy 360” Company. At the January 10 meeting three BOE Members volunteered to attend which, under Kansas Open Meeting Laws, does not constitute a meeting of the Board of Education. No action of any kind could be taken by the BOE at such a meeting as four affirmative votes are required for any action.

At 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 8 four USD 211 BOE members were present for Mr. Hurla’s presentation: Mrs. Karnopp, Mr. Berry, Mr. Ellis and Mr. Wyatt. Therefore, as a quorum of the Board was present, this gathering did constitute a meeting of the Board of Education and a meeting of the Board of Education was called to order by BOE Vice-President Scott Ellis and a 24-hour waiver of notice signed by the members present.

No action was taken by the Board at this meeting.
