Board Meeting Resolution
In order to prevent against the further spread of the novel coronavirus, the Board of Education will vote to temporarily suspend its public participation policy for Board and/or committee meetings, which shall no longer be in effect upon the adoption of this Resolution by a majority of the Board of Education. Such policy may be reinstated through a subsequent action taken by the Board of Education or after the current state of emergency is lifted.
In order to enable the Board of Education to continue with District operations during the public health emergency, the Board of Education may meet telephonically or through other electronic means, including, but not limited to, conference calls or other video meeting technology to conduct the public business of the public body while emergency orders of the federal and/or state government are in effect limiting public gatherings. Such meetings will be properly noticed to the public through the established and usual method of notice to the public.
In order to provide an opportunity for attendance by the public, news media, and any other person that has requested notification of meetings via the technology utilized will be made available to the extent reasonably possible and feasible, either live or recorded. The means of technology and information on how to access the meeting as a member of the public will be made available on the District’s website. The Board of Education intends to fully honor its obligations under the Open Meetings Act.
