On March 12, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom’s Order N-25-20 authorized state and local bodies to hold public meetings via teleconferencing and waived certain requirements for teleconferenced school board meetings under the Brown Act.
On March 17, 2020, Governor Newsom’s Order N-29-20 waived additional requirements for teleconferenced school board meetings. This new order states that there is not a requirement to provide any physical location for the public to attend and participate in teleconferenced school board meetings.
On April 4, 2020, Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser “ordered that no gatherings of any number of people may take place outside of family members residing in the same home.”
Therefore, until further notice, all PUHSD school board meetings will take place via teleconference. The intention in doing so is to follow the local and state orders and protect the public health. It is also our intention to follow the Executive Orders and provide the following for teleconferenced school board meetings:
- Provide notice stating how the public can observe and/or give public comment
- Provide a link for the public to observe the teleconference
- Provide a method for the public to offer public comment
- Provide a procedure for receiving and resolving requests for reasonable accommodation from individuals with disabilities.
Instructions for public viewing of the teleconferenced school board meetings and instructions for public comments will be posted with each school board agenda.
