Each member of the Board of Trustees may receive the maximum monthly compensation as provided for in law.

Board members are not required to accept payment for meetings attended.

Board members are expected to attend all Regular and Special Board meetings agendized and timely posted to be eligible for monthly compensation. If a member does not attend all Board meetings during the month, he/she is eligible to receive only a percentage of the monthly compensation equal to the percentage of meetings attended unless otherwise authorized by the Board in accordance with law. (Education Code 1090, 35120) A Board meeting shall be considered held for purposes of a Board member to be eligible for monthly compensation, if the Board meeting agenda was timely posted; 72 hours prior to a Regular Board meeting, 24 hours prior to a Special Board meeting.

Members may be paid for meetings they missed when the Board, by resolution, finds that they were performing designated services for the district at the time of the meeting or that they were absent because of illness, jury duty, or a hardship deemed acceptable by the Board. (Education Code 1090, 35120)

In order to receive compensation for any Board meeting, Board members shall be present for the complete meeting.

Reimbursement of Expenses

Board members shall be reimbursed for traveling expenses incurred when so authorized in advance by the Board. (Education Code 35044)
