a. Public Comment     

This communication item is included on the agenda of each regular board meeting to provide an opportunity for citizens to make suggestions or identify concerns about matters affecting the district, or to suggest an item be scheduled for a future agenda.  The President invites anyone wishing to address the Board on any item not on the agenda that is within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board to do so at this time.  Those wishing to address the Board are invited to fill out a “Request to Speak” card (available at the door) and present it to Mrs. Cyndi Bauer, Ms. Shelley Black's Designee, prior to this portion of the Agenda.  Instructions for making public comments are noted below and also on the reverse side of the Request to Speak card.

Unless otherwise approved by the Board, the total time allotted to each person who speaks will be three minutes with a total of 20 minutes allocated for the item.  In cases of numerous requests to address the same item, the Board may select representatives to speak on each side of the item.

Comments must be addressed to the Board as a whole and not to individual staff members or District employees.  As required by law, Members of the Governing Board can only take action on items listed on the agenda and may not comment on the Public’s Comments.  Board Members may seek clarification or refer specific concerns to District Staff for appropriate attention.

No person is granted any privilege by the Board to make statements which may be considered defamatory or otherwise actionable by other persons, including District officers and employees

Discussion of personnel matters is inappropriate for open session.  Complaints against employees will normally be heard in closed session, and the District’s complaint procedure should be followed before discussion with the Board.  All charges or complaints against employees shall be submitted to the governing Board under the provisions of governing Board policy.  (cf. 1312 – Complaints Concerning School Personnel).  Speakers are cautioned that under California law, no person is immune from liability for making intentionally false or defamatory comments regarding any person simply because those comments are made at a public meeting.

Please note that State Law prohibits the Board from taking any action on items not listed on the agenda.

These procedures are not designed to restrict public criticism of policies, procedures, programs or services of the district, or the acts or omissions of the Board.  Legal Reference: Education Code 35145, 35145.5, 72121, 72121.5
