Q Are contracts and leases with the school district enforceable when the board approves the contracts/leases and the approval is reflected in the board minutes but the actual lease/contract document is stored separately?

A Yes, contracts/leases do not have to be attached to the board minutes in order to be enforceable. For a contract/lease to be enforceable, the board minutes must contain enough of the terms and conditions of the contract/lease to determine the liabilities and obligations of the contracting parties without the necessity of resorting to other evidence.
