Notice of Special School Board Meetings

SB 1133 79th Legislature

Requires a school district to post notices of meetings of the school board on the school district’s website, if a website is maintained by, or for, the district and if a school district is located in whole or in part within the corporate boundaries of a municipality with a population of 48,000 or more.

The Internet posting is in addition to any other posting required. The validity of a notice or agenda is not affected by a failure to comply with a requirement under the new section that is due to a technical problem beyond the control of the school district. This language is in addition to the current requirement to post meeting notices on a bulletin board at a place convenient to the public in the central administrative office of the district.

Texas Open Meetings Act, the Texas Government Code, Chapter 551 requires a school board to give a public advance written notice of the subjects it will consider in a regular, special, or called meeting. The notice must also state the date, hour and place of the meeting. A school district must post notice of meetings at a place at the central administrative office of the district that is generally accessible to the general public for at least 72 hours before the scheduled time of the meeting. The only exception to the 72-hour posting requirement is for “emergency” meetings and those meetings must meet the requirements of Texas Government Code Chapter 551.045. In cases of emergency, the board must post notice of the date, place and subject of the meeting for not less than 2 hours prior to the meeting.

Conflict of Interest

Local Government Code Chapter 176 Conflict of Interest The district must provide access to information concerning business relationships between local government officials and vendors that contract with local government entities. The manner by which information about these business relationships are disclosed was the subject of extensive interpretation and clarification by the Attorney General in GA-0446.

The records administrator for the entity is required to maintain a list of “local government officers of the entity and shall make that list available to the public and any person who may be required to file a questionnaire. In addition, entities are required to “provide access to the statements and questionnaires . . . on the Internet website maintained by the local governmental entity. Larger entities have additional internet website listing requirements.

HB 1491 from the 80th legislature codifies many of the rulings in GA-0446. It provides that a local governmental entity is not required to maintain an Internet site to provide access to statements and questionnaires.
