How To Address The Board

Written Correspondence

The Board of Education is interested in your point of view. If you would like to communicate your thoughts to an individual member or to the entire Board you may contact them via email or by mail at 375 Via Almar, Palos Verdes Estates, CA 90274.

At a Board Meeting

The Board of Education encourages your participation in its deliberations and has tried to make it convenient for you to express your views to the Board. If you wish to address the Board on an agenda item, please obtain a card that is on the table along with the agenda; fill the card out completely and give it to the Board secretary sitting at the table. Please turn your card in prior to the presentation of the item you wish to address. The staff person will see that your card is presented to the President of the Board of Education, who will call upon you at the appropriate time during the discussion of that agenda item.

If you wish to address the Board on an item that is not on the agenda, you may speak during the Public Communications on Non-Agenda Items section of the agenda. Board members are legally prohibited from discussing non-agenda items and, therefore, will not respond to items presented during this portion of the meeting.

Board agendas are very full and time is limited. For that reason, we request that you speak only once on an item and that you limit your remarks either when addressing an agenda item or when speaking on non-agenda items to a maximum of three minutes. If numerous individuals request to speak on a particular item or during Public Communication on Non-Agenda Items, the Board President may limit the total time allocated to a total of 15 minutes for that item, thereby reducing the time for each speaker.

On April 15, 2021, the State's Blueprint for a Safe Economy allowed for in-person meetings.  Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District will proceed with caution and adhere to the requirements in the protocol to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
