ADDRESSING THE BOARD: You may speak on a matter not on the agenda at the beginning of a regular meeting during the time reserved for public comment. After being recognized by the President, you will be allowed three minutes for your presentation. The Board will take no action on the matter at this meeting. You may speak on any item on the agenda when that item is being discussed.
REGULAR SESSION: In order to address the Board, please wait for recognition by the President. Speakers are expected to be courteous and to avoid any remarks that reflect adversely on the character or motives of any person or on his or her race, religion, or political or economic views.
The Board will hear public testimony on any given topic for a maximum of twenty (20) minutes. Each speaker will be limited three (3) minutes. The Board may, by consensus and at its discretion, extend the time limit.
COMPLAINTS: Complaints are to be addressed by first speaking with the person directly involved. If this does not resolve the issue, the complaint should be submitted in writing to the Superintendent. The Superintendent will investigate and respond in writing. Only after exhausting these levels can a written request be submitted asking that the issue be heard by the Board.
CLOSED SESSION: While school board meetings must be open to the public, California law provides for closed sessions which are not open to the public when the Board is considering expulsions, suspensions or disciplinary actions in connection with any pupil; the appointment, employment or dismissal of a public officer or employee; or when the Board is hearing complaints or charges brought against a public officer or employee. The individual may, however, request a public hearing. In addition, the Board may hold a closed session to discuss certain aspects of negotiations with employees.
