The Board of Trustees has established the following meetings dates for the 2020-2021 school year, though calendar considerations such as holidays may cause the dates to be changed. All regular meetings of the Board of Trustees will begin at 6:00 p.m. for closed session and 7:00 p.m. for open session.

Public Participation Instructions for the Board of Trustees Meetings Due to COVID-19
In response to the Shelter in Place Order given to Santa Clara County and the State of California, until further notice, the Berryessa Union School District will be conducting its Board of Trustees meetings at the regular times, in a different modality.
The District will be leveraging a Webinar format (using Zoom) in order for the Trustees to participate remotely, and to allow for orderly public comment. There will not be a physical location for these meetings until further notice.
Participants who would like to make comments can join the meeting from their computer, tablet or smartphone. We ask the participants to type their full name when joining the meeting, as prompted. The President of the Board will announce the opportunity for public comment on non-agenda items and for each agenda item. We ask that all participants who wish to make public comments for that agenda item to use the “Raise your hand” functionality. The attendees will be called upon, their microphone unmuted, and then allowed to make their public statement for up to three minutes. At the end of the three minutes, the attendee’s microphone will be muted and the next participant will be called upon.
The instructions to join each board meeting will be included at the top of each posted agenda.
