Effective October 1, 2021, the Governing Board of the Clovis Unified School District will resume full in-person board meetings pursuant to the Ralph M. Brown Act (Government Code § 54950 et seq.). The Governor’s executive orders that authorized flexibility in holding board meetings expired on September 30, 2021.
Members of the public may attend board meetings and address the Board in-person at the board meeting room, located at 1680 David E. Cook Way in Clovis. However, the Board may limit the number of persons in the board meeting room at any time to comply with California public health orders and guidance. All persons attending board meetings shall comply with California public health orders and guidance.
Members of the public who wish to provide public comments in-person during a board meeting are requested to complete and submit a public presentation form before 6:30 p.m. of the day of the meeting. The public presentation form is available outside the board meeting room on the day of the meeting. During the meeting, speakers who have requested to address the Board in-person will be called to do so. Comments relating to a public hearing are be made during the public hearing. Comments on items that are on the agenda are to be made when the item is called by the Board President. Comments on matters that are not on the agenda are to be made during the Public Presentations. Pursuant to Board Bylaw No. 9323, the Board President may adjust the time allotted for each speaker and limit the total time for public comment. A total of 30 minutes have been allotted for non-agendized items (during Public Presentations) and for each agenda item, with each speaker generally having up to 2 minutes to speak unless there are more than 15 speakers, in which case, each speaker’s time will be reduced to a time period to be announced by the Board President. No speaker may yield his or her time to another speaker.
Each regular board meeting will be video recorded by the District, the recording of which will be made accessible to the public within 48 hours of the board meeting at: https://www.youtube.com/user/clovisusd
