LOCAL SCHOOL BOARD LEGAL STATUS
As a body created under the laws of Wyoming, the district school board ultimately derives its authority from the people of the state. The school board is responsible to the voters of the district and exercises its authority subject to the provisions of the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Wyoming, state law, and rules and regulations of the Wyoming State Department of Education and within budgets for expenditures as prescribed by the Municipal Fiscal Procedures Act.
The law states that:
The board of trustees of a school district shall be the governing body of the school district. A majority of the number of members of the board of trustees shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at any meeting of the board of trustees. No action of the board of trustees shall be valid unless such action shall receive the approval of a majority of the members elected to the board of trustees. (W.S. 21-3-105).
