School Board


The Board of Directors act as the school district's policy making body and is the official representative of the people for all public education in Camden Fairview School District. The Board functions according to state and federal laws, the rules and regulations established by the State Board of Education and the will of the people as expressed in district elections. The seven member board, while composed of individuals, acts officially only as a group. No member or group of members acts in the name of the Board unless authorized by the Board. A majority of the Board constitutes a quorum for the transaction of business. Individual directors, serving without pay, are elected for a three year term on a rotating basis. Elections are conducted on the second Tuesday in September. While candidates run for specific positions on the ballot, they represent the entire district as Board members. The Board of Trustees elects a president, vice-president, and secretary to serve one-year terms. It selects and employs the superintendent and delegates the responsibility and authority for the operation of the school district to that chief executive officer. The superintendent advises Board members on all matters concerning school management.



Meeting Types
The regular business meetings of the Board of Directors is open to the public and usually scheduled for the third Tuesday of the month, except for March of 2019, in the auditorium of the Administration Building, 625 Clifton Street, Camden. Occasionally, a regular meeting date is changed, or a special meeting is called; but in all cases, notice is given. In crisis situations where immediate action is required, Arkansas law allows the Board to call an emergency meeting.


Order of Business
The board President recognizes that a quorum is present and calls the meeting to order. Next is an open forum section and presentations by staff members. Guided by the agenda, the Board discusses and acts on routine business items. Usually, these items have been discussed and studied at previous meetings allowing the Board to take informed action. The business items are followed by study items on the agenda that require Board action at future meetings. The study items may include reports or presentations by staff members along with a discussion by the Board.
