SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS
Regular meetings of the Governing Board of the Waugh School District are held the first Tuesday of each month in the Multipurpose Room at Corona Creek School, located at 1851 Hartman Lane in Petaluma, at 7:00 PM. Occasional Closed Sessions of the Board are held to discuss confidential topics such as contract negotiations, personnel, and student issues.
A file of the documents and background information concerning the agenda items is made available to the public in the meeting room. It is requested that the file not to be removed from the meeting room so that all who attend may have access.
Individuals who require special accommodations, including but not limited to an American Sign Language interpretation, accessible seating or documentation in accessible formats, should contact the Superintendent at least five days before the meeting date.
Individuals who wish to broadcast, photograph, or tape record open meetings may do so from a location at the back or side of the meeting room, so long as a distraction is not created.

If a member of the community is interested in presenting information to the Board during an agenda item, it is the person’s responsibility to complete a Public Comment Sign In Form before the start of Open Session. This Form must be filled out if a person is interested in speaking on any topic. Public Comment Forms can be obtained from the District Administrative Secretary.
When the Board President brings an agenda item to the floor, the Superintendent will provide a brief overview of the item. At that time, one person at a time who completed a Public Comment Form on that specific item will be provided three minutes to share information with the Board. The purpose of allowing community input is to ensure that the Board has access to information before rendering a decision. The District Administrative Secretary will be the timekeeper for all community members speaking on a given topic, and she will notify all present when the allocated three minutes are up.
“Community Input” is an opportunity for the public to present information about items that are not on that month’s agenda. To keep meetings streamlined, focused, and timely a maximum of twenty minutes of “Community Input” will be permitted at each meeting. Only community members completing a Public Comment Form before the start of Open Session will have an opportunity to present/speak.
Agenda items are specific in nature. Once the Superintendent provides a brief overview on an agenda item, one person at a time that completed a Public Comment Card on that specific item will be provided three minutes to share information with the Board. A total of twenty minutes will be provided for input on each agenda item.
Once a member of the community has presented, their opportunity to provide information on “Community Input” or an” Agenda” item has ended. Since the purpose of community presentations is to provide information to the Board, the public should refrain from asking questions. If the community has specific questions about a topic, they are encouraged to schedule a meeting at a later date with the Superintendent. The Superintendent will answer any/all questions that are not confidential in nature.
If you wish to distribute materials to the Board, please submit 10 copies to the Superintendent. The Board will hear public comments only on matters over which they have jurisdiction.
The Board can take no action on items brought to their attention by the public at meetings that are not on the board agenda for action.
The Board is not allowed to discuss personnel issues at public meetings.
Consent Agenda items are typically routine and non-controversial in nature and are considered for approval by the Board with a single action. The Board may remove items from the Consent Agenda for discussion. If members of the public wish to comment on Consent Agenda items they may do so during Community Input.
