B.

PROCEDURE

2. If the Board fails to follow the time limit, the grievance is filed at such time that it cannot be processed through all the steps in this grievance procedure by the end of the school year, and, if left unresolved until the beginning of the following school year, harm could result to a party, in interest then the time limits set forth, herein, shall be reduced so that the grievance procedure may be exhausted prior to the end of the school year, or as soon thereafter as practical.
3. The meetings and hearing shall be conduced in private.

C. LEVELS OF PROCEDURE
