All meetings of the board shall be open and public except as otherwise provided
The board may hold executive sessions closed to the public to consider the employment of any person, or the dismissal or other form of disciplinary action to be taken against any officer or employee under the jurisdiction of the board, except where that person, officer, or employee requests a public hearing. The employment status of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges is subject to this authority of the board. The board may exclude from that meeting, whether public or closed to the public, during the examination of a witness, any or all other witnesses in the matter being investigated.
