Emergency Meetings: In emergency situations entailing threatened or actual disruption of public facilities, the board may hold emergency meetings without compliance with the special meeting 24-hour notice requirement or the 24-hour posting requirement. Emergency situations are defined in Government code 54956.5 at follows:
- An emergency such as a work stoppage, crippling activity or other activity that severely impairs public health or safety or both, as determined by a majority of members of the board; or
- A dire emergency such as a crippling disaster, mass destruction, terrorist act or threatened terrorist activity that poses peril so immediate and significant that requiring the board to provide one-hour notice before holding the meeting may endanger the public health or safety, or both, as determined by a majority of the members of the board.
Complete agendas inclusive of all backup documentation are posted to the website in accordance with the regulations provided above. Due to the size of a complete agenda, those requesting an electronic version of the agenda will only receive the agenda portion listing the items to be discussed at the board meeting and will not include any back up documentation. The complete agenda may be downloaded and printed from this site.

Separate Cover Items: On occasion, items will be provided to the Board of Trustees under separate cover and are available to the public upon request.

However, there are times that items are provided to the Board of Trustees under separate cover and are NOT available to the public due to reasons of confidentiality. In these cases, the public is not entitled to receive copies of these documents.
