Notification of Meetings
It is the responsibility of the Board Secretary to give public notice of Board meetings and work sessions.
The public notice will indicate the date, time, place, and tentative agenda for all Board meetings by posting the notice near the front entrance of the Educational Leadership and Support Center at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.
Notification of meetings will be provided to any news media organization that has filed a written request to that effect with the Board Secretary. Board meeting information shall also be disseminated through the District Web site, video re-broadcasts and social media platforms, and responses to individual requests.
In the case of special meetings, public notice will be given in the same manner as for a regular meeting unless it is an emergency meeting. In that case, public notice of the meeting will be given as soon as practical and possible in light of the situation. The media and others who have requested notice will be notified of the emergency meeting. Attendance at a special meeting or emergency meeting by the media or Board members will constitute a waiver of notice.
Persons wishing to view the tentative agenda may do so at the central administration Board Secretary’s office or by visiting the District website. Persons wishing to view supporting documents may be able to do so if the documents are subject to disclosure according to law.
Notice to Board Members
Board members shall receive the Board agenda no less than three (3) days prior to each meeting. These documents are the private property of the Board member. In the case of special meetings, a notice specifying the time and place of the meeting shall be delivered to each member by electronic notification.
