Preliminary Information

Any person wishing to speak on any item on the agenda of a regular meeting will be granted up to three (3) minutes at the time the item appears on the agenda, or during Community Comments for all non-agenda items that are within the jurisdiction of the board.  Prior to addressing the board, each speaker is requested to complete a speaker card (located on the table near the door) and give it to the Superintendent’s Executive Assistant before the meeting starts or at the beginning of the agenda item.  To ensure that all speakers are provided an equal opportunity to address the board, individual speakers may not “yield” their allotted time to address the board to other speakers.  The board may limit the total amount of time allocated for comment on a particular issue (Government Code section 54954.3[b]).  The board discourages complaints against individual officers or employees of the district during open session.

As a courtesy to others, please turn off your cell phone upon entering the meeting.
