Board meetings are open to the public and public participation is strongly encouraged. Board agendas, packets, presentations, and minutes of past board meetings may be viewed below. Agendas, packets, and presentations are posted monthly on the Friday before the board meeting; minutes are posted after they are approved as part of the following month’s packet. If any community member would like board agendas and packets emailed to them before board meetings, please contact Lise Belton at (831) 455-2550 x312.
The Board of Education encourages participation in its deliberations and has tried to make it convenient to express views to the board. If a person wishes to address the board on an item not on the agenda, the person should fill out a speaker card and give it to a staff member (seated at the side table) prior to the beginning of the open session. The Board President will randomly call on persons submitting cards. Individual comments are limited to three minutes per speaker, per subject, and a maximum of 20 minutes for each subject matter. Board members may not discuss, nor take action on, items not on the agenda. For items on the agenda, audience members may raise their hands to speak when the Board President calls for discussion.
Agendas and Minutes
The agendas can be accessed HERE. Approved minutes from board meetings are included in the next month’s packet (i.e. March’s minutes are in April’s packet). Files will open in “preview” mode. To utilize embedded links, download the file.
