Board meeting agendas and minutes

You can read the agenda and minutes at the link below:

     Online Agendas

 You may review the agenda by clicking on Meetings icon in the upper right corner.


If a member of the community is interested in presenting information to the Board during an agenda item, it is the person’s responsibility to complete a Public Comment Sign In Form before the start of Open Session.  This Form must be filled out if a person is interested in speaking on any topic.  Public Comment Forms can be obtained from the District Administrative Secretary. 

When the Board President brings an agenda item to the floor, the Superintendent will provide a brief overview of the item.  At that time, one person at a time who completed a Public Comment Form on that specific item will be provided three minutes to share information with the Board.  The purpose of allowing community input is to ensure that the Board has access to information before rendering a decision.  The District Administrative Secretary will be the timekeeper for all community members speaking on a given topic, and she will notify all present when the allocated three minutes are up. 

“Community Comment” is an opportunity for the public to present information about items that are not on that month’s agenda.  To keep meetings streamlined, focused, and timely a maximum of twenty minutes of “Community Comment” will be permitted at each meeting.  Only community members completing a Public Comment Form before the start of Open Session will have an opportunity to present/speak.     

Agenda items are specific in nature.  Once the Superintendent provides a brief overview on an agenda item, one person at a time that completed a Public Comment Card on that specific item will be provided three minutes to share information with the Board.  A total of twenty minutes will be provided for input on each agenda item.    

 Once a member of the community has presented, their opportunity to provide information on “Community Comment” or an” Agenda” item has ended.  Since the purpose of community presentations is to provide information to the Board, the public should refrain from asking questions.  If the community has specific questions about a topic, they are encouraged to schedule a meeting at a later date with the Superintendent.  The Superintendent will answer any/all questions that are not confidential in nature.                         

If you wish to distribute materials to the Board, please submit 10 copies to the Superintendent. The Board will hear public comments only on matters over which they have jurisdiction.

The Board can take no action on items brought to their attention by the public at meetings that are not on the board agenda for action.

The Board is not allowed to discuss personnel issues at public meetings.
