Preliminary Information

AGENDA

Closed Session Procedure:  There are a number of exceptions to the requirement that the public business is done in public. The Legislature has articulated these exceptions because of public necessity for confidentiality or because an open disclosure would violate the privacy rights of an employee or a pupil.

Public Comments Procedure:  The Board of Trustees welcomes the public’s participation at Board meetings and has devoted time in the meeting for that purpose.  The Board requests that you fill out a card and your name will be called under the appropriate agenda item or public comment section of the agenda.  Time for comments will be limited to three minutes. 

Anyone may address the Board regarding any item that is within the Board’s subject matter jurisdiction.  However, the Board may not take action on any item which is not on this agenda except as authorized by Government Code 54954.2.

Consent Agenda Procedure: Generally routine items are approved by one motion without discussion. The Superintendent or a Board member may request that an item be pulled from the consent agenda and voted on separately.

Action Agenda Procedure:  Formal action is required which frequently includes discussion prior to the motion.  Time is given for public comments.
