205 Open Meetings and Closed Meetings
Rationale: The School Board embraces the philosophy of openness in the conduct of its business, in the belief that openness produces better programs, more efficiency in administration of programs, and an organization more responsive to public interest and less susceptible to private interest. The School Board shall conduct its business under a presumption of openness. At the same time, the School Board recognizes and respects the privacy rights of individuals as provided by law. The School Board also recognizes that there are certain exceptions to the Minnesota Open Meeting Law as recognized in statute where it has been determined that, in limited circumstances, the public interest is best served by closing a meeting of the School Board.
