Board of Education
The San José Unified Board of Education traditionally meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month. Regular meetings begin at 6:00 p.m. at 855 Lenzen Avenue, San José, CA 95126, except as noted or when a closed session is scheduled. The meeting agenda is posted on our online Board document management system 72 hours prior to a regular meeting. Materials for special meetings are posted 24 hours prior to the start of the meeting.
The Board of Education has five members who are elected by trustee area, one student board member and one alternate student board member who are appointed each year by the Board of Education. Seats for odd-numbered trustee areas are elected during presidential election years. Seats for even-numbered trustee areas are elected during gubernatorial election years.
The Board of Education values public input and encourages members of the public to attend meetings and address the Board concerning any item on the agenda or within the Board’s jurisdiction. Public participation guidelines are set forth in Board Bylaw 9323 - Meeting Conduct.
