Board Agenda

During all regular and special meetings, the Board follows and acts upon an agenda composed of items presented from the Superintendent’s Office, or the Business, Instruction and Personnel divisions. At least 72 hours before each regular meeting – and 24 hours before each special meeting – an agenda is posted at the District Office and at each school site for public information. You are welcome to receive a copy of the board agenda and supporting information either for a specific meeting or on a regular basis. Agendas are also available at the entrance to the Board Room prior to each meeting. The administrative report, which is included on the agenda as a consent item, expedites action on routine matters. Action is taken on all consent items at one time.
