    (105 ILCS 5/10-16)  (from Ch. 122, par. 10-16)
    Sec. 10-16. Organization of Board. Within 40 28 days after
the consolidated election, other than the consolidated
elections in 1999 and 2001, the board shall organize by
electing its officers and fixing a time and place for the
regular meetings. However, when school board members are
elected at the consolidated elections held in April of 1999
and April of 2001, the board shall organize within 7 days after
the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November in each
such year by electing officers and setting the time and place
of the regular meetings. Upon organizing itself as provided in
this paragraph, the board shall enter upon the discharge of
its duties.
    The regional superintendent of schools having supervision
and control, as provided in Section 3-14.2, of a new school
district that is governed by the School Code and formed on or
after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1998 shall
convene the newly elected board within 7 days after the
election of the board of education of that district, whereupon
the board shall proceed to organize by electing one of their
number as president and electing a secretary, who may or may
not be a member. At such meeting the length of term of each of
the members shall be determined by lot so that 4 shall serve
for 4 years, and 3 for 2 years from the commencement of their
terms; provided, however, if such members were not elected at
the consolidated election in an odd-numbered year, such
initial terms shall be extended to the consolidated election
for school board members immediately following the expiration
of the initial 4 or 2 year terms. The provisions of this
paragraph that relate to the determination of terms by lot
shall not apply to the initial members of the board of
education of a combined school district who are to be elected
to unstaggered terms.
    The terms of the officers of a board of education shall be
for 2 years, except that the terms of the officers elected at
the organization meeting in November, 2001 shall expire at the
organization meeting in April, 2003; provided that the board
by resolution may establish a policy for the terms of office to
be one year, and provide for the election of officers.
    Special meetings of the board of education may be called
by the president or by any 3 members of the board by giving
notice thereof in writing, stating the time, place and purpose
of the meeting. Such notice may be served by mail 48 hours
before such meeting or by personal service 24 hours before
such meeting. Public notice of meetings must also be given as
prescribed in Sections 2.02 and 2.03 of the Open Meetings Act,
as now or hereafter amended.
    At each regular and special meeting which is open to the
public, members of the public and employees of the district
shall be afforded time, subject to reasonable constraints, to
comment to or ask questions of the board.
    The president or district superintendent shall, at each
regular board meeting, report any requests made of the
district under provisions of the Freedom of Information Act
and shall report the status of the district's response.
