NOTICE: Information for Virtual Special Board Meeting
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-29-20, which temporarily suspends provisions of the Brown Act relating to public meetings. As such, Elk Grove Unified School District Board members will be conducting this open session special board meeting in order to participate in Board professional development via Zoom video/teleconferencing. During small group activities during the training, if less than a quorum of the Board is meeting, a Zoom video/teleconferencing intermission message shall be displayed for the public.
