The Board of Education provides direction for operating the District through actions taken at its meetings. Board members, as a body, develop the policies by which the educational programs and other business of the District are carried out. They may not act individually in the name of the Board; action may be taken only when the Board is gathered in a formal meeting with a majority of the members present.
Meetings are made available online to the public except for closed sessions, which the Board is permitted to hold to hear and consider confidential items such as matters relating to individual employees or students, litigation, and other subjects contained in the Brown Act. Certain actions taken in closed session are reported out during the open session portion of each meeting.
Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order N-29-20 dated March 17, 2020, the Board is authorized to hold this meeting via teleconferencing and to make this meeting accessible electronically to all members of the public seeking to observe and address the Board. Members of the public are welcome to participate through the public comment process. If you wish to comment on an item on the agenda or within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board, please review updated procedures below.

Piazza (JDP) Education Center, located at 9680 Citrus Avenue, Fontana CA 92335.

For Special meetings of the Board, public comments are limited to agenda items only (Board Bylaw 9323; Gov’t Code 54954.3(a)). The Board shall limit the total time for public input on each item to 25 minutes. With Board consent, the President may increase or decrease the time allowed for public presentation, depending on the topic and the number of persons wishing to be heard (Board Bylaw 9323). Speakers are cautioned that under California law no person is immune from liability for making intentionally false or defamatory comments regarding any person simply because those comments are made at a public meeting.
