Board of Education

Board of Education

The San José Unified Board of Education traditionally meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month in the Board Room at the District Office, 855 Lenzen Ave., San José, CA 95126. Regular Meetings begin at 6:00pm, except as noted or when a Closed Session is scheduled.

Meeting Procedures

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.

Public Comments

A member of the public wishing to address the Board should complete the appropriate “Request to Speak” card and submit it to the Board’s Assistant prior to the conclusion of Public Comments. Cards are located on a table near the entrance to the Board Room.

Speakers should clearly identify whether they are addressing an agenda item or non-agenda item by selecting the appropriate speaker card.

  • Green cards should be submitted for comments in favor of an agenda item
  • Red cards should be submitted for comments in opposition to an agenda item
  • Yellow cards should be submitted for matters not on the agenda

Allocated Time to Speak

Individual speakers who are recognized to speak should identify themselves and will be allowed two minutes to address the Board for each Request to Speak card. The Board may limit the total time for public comment on each item to 20 minutes. With Board consent, the President may increase or decrease the time allowed for public comment, depending on the topic and the number of persons wishing to be heard.

The Superintendent or designee shall designate locations from which members of the public may broadcast, photograph, or tape record open meetings without causing a distraction. If the Board finds that noise, illumination, or obstruction of view related to these activities would persistently disrupt the proceedings, these activities shall be discontinued or restricted as determined by the Board.

A video or audio recording may be made and/or broadcast at any open Board meeting. The Board President shall announce that a recording or broadcasting is being made at the direction of the Board at the beginning of the meeting and, as practicable, the recorder or camera shall be placed in plain view of meeting participants.

Recordings made at the direction of the Board during open Board meetings are public records. They shall be kept for at least 30 days and upon request shall be made available for inspection by members of the public on district equipment without charge.
