PUBLIC MEETING NOTICE

Virtual Regular Board of Education Meeting

October 22, 2020

Meeting to start at 4:00 p.m. Closed Session; 5:00 p.m. Open to the Public.

Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-25-20 on March 12, 2020, and Executive Order N-29-20 on March 17, 2020. Portions of these orders relax parts of the Brown Act. In part, the orders allow elected officials to “attend” a meeting virtually without having to admit members of the public into the location from which they are participating (N-25-20) and orders that "such a body need not make available any physical location from which members of the public may observe the meeting and offer public comment" (N-29-20). The only business conducted by the Board is as published on the Governing Board Agenda at go.boarddocs.com/ca/hlpusd/board.nsf/public
