About Governing Board Meetings

Board meetings are held for the purpose of setting or amending District policies, acting on recommendations by the Superintendent on matters ranging from personnel to maintenance of facilities, adopting an operating budget and tax rate for the District and authorizing the spending of budgeted funds. From input by Board members, an agenda is prepared by the Board President and Superintendent before each meeting. All votes are recorded and minutes are kept on permanent record. Because Board members actively seek the advice and counsel of District residents, citizens are encouraged to regularly attend Board meetings.
