Types of Meetings

Regular Meetings:  Regular meetings are convened for the discharge of the Board's legal responsibilities and include, but are not limited to, discussions of policy, school district business, planning, educational programs, and matters of community interest.  Regular meetings are held once a month on a Thursday starting at 5 p.m.


Special Meetings:
Special meetings may be called when a vote on a specific issue is needed before
a regular meeting is scheduled. Special meetings may be called by the Board President or by a majority of the Board. No business will be transacted except that for which the special meeting was convened. Special meeting agendas are  posted 24 hours in advance as required by law.

Study Sessions:  
These sessions may be scheduled from time to time to provide Board Members with opportunities for planning and discussion without formal action. Topics for discussion will be announced publicly and sessions will be conducted in accordance with state law.

Public Hearings:  
Public hearings may be conducted from time to time to assure adequate time for the public to express its views regarding a specific issue.
Board Members may be invited to attend meetings of the community, organizations or forums. These do not constitute meetings of the Board, so long as no more than 3 members attend. Decisions must be made corporately. Constituent requests should be considered by the Board when it has a quorum  in the appropriate meeting setting as indicated above.
 

Public Participation

Placing an Item on the Agenda
You may place matters directly related to school district business on the agenda by contacting the Office of the Board of Education. Please include available back-up material. The Superintendent or designee will determine whether the matter is directly related to school district business and when the item will be agendized. Written requests must be received at least 12 days prior to the meeting date.

Addressing the Board Regarding Agendized and Non-Agendized Items
If you request to speak about a matter of school district business not on the agenda, you will be invited to make your remarks during the "Public Comment" portion of the agenda. Public comment will be limited to a total of 30 minutes at the beginning of the meeting. If you wish to address the Board, please complete a yellow speaker card located at the entrance to the meeting room and provide to the recording secretary prior to the discussion of the topic. Please limit comments to 3 minutes each. At the Board’s discretion, if the time to accommodate all speakers exceeds 30 minutes, the time may be reduced to two (2) minutes per speaker in order to facilitate the efficient working of the Board. 

When You Are Recognized to Speak
Please step to the microphone, state your name and address for the record, and direct your remarks to the President. Because of the Brown Act, neither the Board nor Administration may respond to items not on the agenda, but may ask clarifying questions only. State law provides for public comment during the course of our meeting; however, we hope that comments and criticism are directed towards issues, not individuals. We ask that all speakers be respectful of our public employees. 

Available for Public Review
An agenda with attachments is available at or near the entrance to the Board meeting area.
