8.         Hearing from the Audience

This is the time and place for the general public to address the School Board on any matter within the jurisdiction of the Board.   State law prohibits the School Board from taking any action on any issue not previously included on the Agenda.  The School Board may receive testimony and set the matter for a subsequent meeting.  Please limit comments to five minutes per individual.

The Board respects the right of members of the public to speak to the Board regarding matters on the agenda and other matters within the jurisdiction of the Board.   Derogatory comments made at a Board meeting, which are repeated outside the context of a Board meeting, may be actionable as defamation.

In addition, the Board wishes to make clear that it is bound by the limitations set forth in Government Code Section 54957, which states that when specific complaints or charges are to be made against a District employee, such employee has the right to have such complaints heard in closed session and to be given prior notice that such complaints will be heard by the Board.  Therefore, members of the public who wish to lodge complaints against District employees are reminded that the Board cannot properly consider such complaints without giving prior notice to the named employee.

The Board also would like to remind anyone who wishes to lodge a complaint against a District employee that there is an existing Board adopted Policy in effect specifically for this purpose.  This policy contains a comprehensive procedure for reviewing and investigating public complaints, which includes a right of appeal to the Board.

This process provides a much more thorough opportunity for the complainant and the employee to be heard and the merits of the complaint to be properly investigated.

Anyone who wishes to receive a copy of this Policy may contact the Superintendent’s office.

Bylaw 9323(c) states that a person wishing to be heard by the Board shall first be recognized by the President and shall then proceed to comment as briefly as the subject permits.  Individual speakers shall be allowed five minutes to address the Board on each agenda or nonagenda item.  The Board shall limit the total time for public input on each item to 20 minutes.  With Board consent, the President may increase or decrease the time allowed for public presentation, depending on the topic and the number of persons wishing to be heard.  The President may take a poll of speakers for or against a particular issue and may ask that additional persons speak only if they have something new to add.   We have now incorporated the use of Speaker’s Cards into our procedures for addressing the Board.  If you wish to address the Board and have not completed a Speaker’s Card, please obtain one from Mrs. Gomez, Recording Secretary.

9.         CONSENT LIST It is recommended that the Board of Trustees consider approving a number of Agenda items as a Consent list.  Consent items are routine in nature, and can be enacted in one motion without further discussion.   The Board may request that certain items on the Consent List be pulled for separate discussion and/or action.  The Board is asked to approve the Consent List as submitted or amended.                                   PAGE 1
