Board meetings are typically held the fourth Monday of the month, starting at 6:00 p.m., with an agenda review meeting the previous Monday. Some months, a workshop is added following the agenda review meeting; workshops provide an in-depth report on one area or department in the district. Agenda review meetings are not held in July, November or December.

At a regular board meeting, any persons wanting to speak during a public forum need to sign in. Persons will be heard on a first-come, first-served basis and will not be permitted to relinquish time to another person. Board members will listen to comments but only the Board president, as the designated spokesperson, may respond to the speaker if required. Responses are limited to: correcting misstatements of fact presented by the speaker, referring the speaker to applicable board policy, or placing the item on a future board agenda for discussion if not listed on the current board agenda. The Board shall allot a total of 30 minutes for the Public Comment portion of the agenda at regular meetings. At the Board's discretion, additional time may be given for public comment at the end of the board's agenda though exact placement is up to the discretion of the board.
Delegations of more than five persons must appoint one person to present their views before the board. The amount of time allowable ranges between three and five minutes. No presentations may exceed five minutes. Refer to BED (local) policy located with the sign up sheet.
Complaints and concerns for which other resolution channels are provided will be directed through those channels. The presiding officer or designee will determine whether a person who wishes to address the Board has attempted to solve the matter administratively. If not, the person will be directed to the appropriate policy BED (local) to seek resolution before bringing the matter to the board at a subsequent meeting.
