2500 Hearings Before The Board

Board hearings, unless otherwise specified by law or board policy, will be informal. Legal rules of evidence will not apply.

The board chairperson, or board member serving as chairperson of a board panel, will establish any other hearing procedures to be followed in a particular hearing.

Board hearings will be conducted in accordance with the Open Meetings Law and all other applicable laws and board policies.
