Google Meets Board Meeting Information:

Members of the public requesting to join the meeting through Google Meets will start being admitted to the meeting no sooner than 15 minutes prior to the 7:00PM start time of the meeting. Requesting permission to enter the meeting is a security measure put in place by Google and is not intended to prohibit, nor does it prohibit, open access to the meeting. However those outside of the district google domain must be admitted and we ask that people please be patient. Google Meets does limit the participation to 250 people and that has to do with system capability and not a restriction set by the district. 

Public participation in board meetings is guided by policy BEDH. Please review this policy prior to attending the meeting.

DATE: Next schedule board Meeting:  November 18, 2021 @ 7:00 PM
