Board Meeting Preview

Understanding Board Meetings

The Board holds two public sessions monthly, on the second and third Monday of the month.  

On the second Monday of the month the Curriculum and Educational Technology Committee meeting and full Board work session are held.  These meetings are where the "real discussions" happen  These meetings feature presentations, reviews and friendly debate on a variety of important topics. Time is always set aside for public comment.  Public comment is welcomed and encouraged, as these are the meetings when the Board members deliberate on the items before them.

On the third Monday of the month (Tuesday this month due to MLK holiday) the Board meets to take action on the agenda items for that month. Time is set aside for public comment.
