School spotlight: Walking quorum
During the July 12 regular meeting of the Marshfield school board, a point of order was called by board member Mark Konrardy regarding clarification on a walking quorum. Marshfield School District Superintendent Dee Wells explains the walking quorum and how it relates to board procedures.
As a walking quorum is a violation of the Wisconsin Open Meetings law, infraction may be self-reported by the school board and is enforced by the district attorney. Proven violation may result in fines.
