The public may address the Board on any matter pertaining to the school district that is not on the agenda. The public may address the Board on each of the remaining items on the agenda as those items are taken up. Unless otherwise determined by the Board, each person is limited to three (3) minutes per item. If a large number wish to speak on a specific item, there is a time limit of 20 minutes total input on any item. (FORMS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE BOARD ROOM ENTRANCE FOR THIS PURPOSE.)
If a member of the public wishes to voice specific complaints or charges against an employee, it is the policy of the Board to hear such complaints or charges in closed session unless otherwise requested by the employee pursuant to Government Code 54957. In order to protect the employee’s right to adequate notice before a hearing of such complaints or charges, and also to preserve the ability of the board to legally consider the complaints or charges in any subsequent evaluation of the employee, a written request must be submitted to the Superintendent five (5) business days prior to the regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Trustees.
Any individual who requires disability-related accommodations or modifications, including auxiliary aid and services, in order to participate in the Board meeting should contact the Superintendent or designee in writing at least 48-hours in advance of the meeting.
Any materials required by law to be made available to the public prior to a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Delano Joint Union High School District can be inspected at 1720 Norwalk St., during normal business hours.
