*The Board of Trustees will not meet in July, this was board approved on June 16th, and will convene on August 12th at 6:30 p.m. for Open Session.
Agendas will be posted 72 hours prior to a Regular Board Meeting and 24 hours prior to a Special Board Meeting. Current agendas can be found online at BoardDocs.
Regular meetings of the Board of Trustees are scheduled July through June on the second Thursday of the month at 6:00 p.m. in the District Board Room (subject to change). Meetings are Called to Order at 6:00 p.m. at which time the Board convenes to Closed Session. The Board's practice has been to then reconvene to Regular Open Session at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend the Board Meetings during non Closed Sessions such as Regular Open Sessions and Study Sessions.
Members of the public who wish to address the Board of Trustees during Matters From The Public or to address an agenda item are to complete a speaker card. Speaker cards are to be placed in a drop box located on a table by the entrance of the Board Room, or may be given to the Director of Board Services before the meeting starts or at the beginning of an agenda item. Should a member of the public wish to speak to the Board of Trustees regarding an item on the Closed Session agenda, he/she may do so immediately before the Closed Session begins. Members of the public are invited to speak to the Board of Trustees regarding agenda items during a non Closed Session right before that agenda item is addressed.
The Board allows up to three (3) minutes per speaker per agenda item, and a maximum of fifteen (15) minutes per agenda item. To ensure that all speakers are provided an equal opportunity to address the Board, individual speakers may not yield their allotted time to address the Board to other speakers. The Board may limit the total amount of time allocated for comment on an agenda item (Government Code 54954.3[b]).
If someone wishes to speak on an item that is not on the agenda but is within the jurisdiction of the Board, he or she may do so during Matters From The Public. The process and time allotment is the same as speaking on an item on the agenda.
In compliance with Government Code 54954.2, no action or discussion shall be undertaken on any item not appearing on the posted agenda. The Board or its staff may briefly respond to statements made or questions posed by the public or ask a question for clarification. The Board may also provide a reference to staff or other resources for factual information, request staff to report back to the body at a subsequent meeting concerning any matter, or take action to direct staff to place a matter of business on a future agenda.
Dates, times, and locations are subject to change. The District Board Room is located at 3188 Quimby Road, San Jose, CA 95148(opens in new window/tab)
