INTERNAL BOARD OPERATIONS

Resignation/Removal from Office/Censure

If for reasons of health, change in domicile, or any other compelling reason, a member decides to terminate service, the Board requests as early as possible notification of intent to resign, so that the Board may plan appropriately.

When a member of a Board of Education shall cease to be a bona fide resident of Litchfield, membership on the Board shall immediately cease.

State law provides that municipal officers seeking to resign from office must submit a written resignation to the municipal clerk. The resignation takes effect upon the date specified in the resignation or, if no date is specified, upon the date of its submission to the clerk.

Removal of Board Officers

Any Board officer may be removed from a position of a Board officer by a two-thirds vote of the membership of the whole Board.

Censure

The Board may vote to censure or reprimand a member by a two-thirds vote of the membership of the whole Board.

Censure has no legal effect.
