arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education may establish Board committees as necessary. The Board shall determine the duties of the committee at the time of its appointment. Board committees shall act in an advisory capacity. When a committee's duties have been completed, the committee shall be dissolved. The Board shall have no standing committee.

(cf. 1220 - Citizen Advisory Committees)

Board committees shall provide public notice of their meetings and conduct these meetings in accordance with state open meeting laws.

Meetings of committees for which an agenda is posted at least 72 hours in advance of the meeting pursuant to Government Code 54954.2, shall be considered, for purposes of the Brown Act, as regular meetings of the Board. (Government Code 54954)

(cf. 9320 - Meetings and Notices)

(cf. 9322 - Agenda/Meeting Materials)

The Superintendent or designee may serve as an advisor to any committee at the discretion of the Board.

Whenever so charged, committees may actively seek input and participation by parents/guardians, staff, community, and students and may consult with local public boards and agencies.

When a Board committee composed exclusively of Board members has provided for public comment on an item at a public meeting before or during the committee's consideration of the item, the Board is not obliged to provide for public comment on the item at a subsequent Board meeting. Public comment shall be afforded, however, if the Board determines that the item has been substantially changed since it was heard by the committee. (Government Code 54954.3)
