School Board Work Session: How To Attend

Meeting Dates & Descriptions
All UCSD Work Session Meetings and Regular Board Meetings are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Please view Board Meeting dates here.

Months when there are two meetings, the first meeting will be a Work Session Meeting. A Work Session is a meeting of the Board where facts are gathered and in-depth discussion is held, but where no final action is taken. The public shall have a right to be present unless a topic may be discussed in closed session, but the public shall not have a right to address the Board during a Work Session. All actions and communications from the public will take place at the next Regular School Board meeting. For more information about Board Meetings, please view Board Policy 209.


How To Attend A School Board Work Session Meeting
UCSD School Board Work Session Meetings are being conducted in person while simultaneously livestreaming on the District YouTube Channel. To confirm the location of each meeting and view the agenda, please visit the Simbli site, select “Meetings,” select “Meetings Listing,” and select the title of the meeting. As mentioned above, public comment will not take place during a School Board Work Session meeting. Instead, public comment will take place at the next Regular School Board meeting.

Given the existing COVID-19 pandemic, combined with space limitations of the meeting room, community members are invited to attend the meeting in a socially distanced manner to the extent possible. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. While face masks remain optional per Iowa law, UCSD encourages the wearing of face masks in order to help mitigate transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Thank you for your cooperation.
