2021 Board Meeting Schedule

April 2020 Update: In an attempt to control the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to reduce and minimize the risk of infection, Governor Newsom issued an executive order on March 12, 2020, issuing guidance “limiting attendance at public assemblies, conferences, or other mass events.” In this executive order, the Governor waived the Open Meeting Brown Act requirements that require a majority of board members to physically participate in a public board meeting at the same location. This means that board trustees will be allowed to participate in board meetings during this time of pandemic remotely (via teleconference).

On March 17, 2020, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-29-20, which among other things, specifically withdraws and supersedes Executive Order N-25-20. Under the new order, the requirement to make a physical location available for the public has been eliminated. A District can comply with public attendance and comment requirements by holding a meeting via "teleconferencing" and allowing members of the public to observe and comment either telephonically, or otherwise electronically.

The Carlsbad Unified School District is doing its part to help in the efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by encouraging members of the public to watch/listen to the Board of Trustees' meetings live online. Beginning in April 2020, and until further notice, meetings will be live-streamed and the link will be posted in Board Docs at 5:00 pm on the date of the meeting. (See 
How to Provide Public Comment below.)

HOW TO PROVIDE PUBLIC COMMENT

Beginning with the October 14, 2020 meeting, we've implemented a new way for members of the public to provide comments to the Board: live comments by phone.

To make comments via phone during the meeting, sign up online no later than 12:00 pm on the day of the meeting. See instructions on how to comment by phone.

The link to sign up online will become live after the agenda (for a regular meeting) is published on the Friday prior to the meeting, and will be deactivated at noon on the day of the meeting.

Please note there are time limitations for public comment. The Board's current practice is to allow three minutes per speaker. In an effort to hear as many speakers as possible, comment times may be shortened (depending on the number of comments received). The Board may also extend the time limits for comments, and/or may move additional comments beyond a specific time allotment to later in the meeting, in order to provide sufficient time for the Board to conduct the Board’s business during the meeting.

At the annual Governance Workshop on January 13, 2021, the Board of Trustees updated their public comment protocol. Beginning at the regular meeting on January 20, 2021, the Board will hear public comment from a representative of the Carlsbad Unified Council of PTAs, the Carlsbad Educational Foundation, the Carlsbad Unified Teachers Association, and the Laborers' International Union of North America, followed by members of the public in the order in which the request to speak was received.

If you wish to provide written comments for the Board to review, e-mail your comments to michelle.bell@carlsbadusd.net no later than noon on the day of the meeting. The public is encouraged to submit feedback at least 24 hours before the meeting to allow time for Trustees to review the comments. Emailed comments will not be read out loud during the meeting.
