Board Resolutions: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

  • A board resolution is drafted when the school board wants a formal record of an issue they deem very important. In the event of non-compliance, the resolution acts as the official record to prove that the issue was discussed and agreed on. Resolutions are important as they aid the process of making decisions. However, it should be noted that board resolutions are not required by law and are less powerful than bylaws, which take precedence if any conflict occurs between the two.
