Pursuant to Board Bylaw 9323 and Section 54943.3 of the Government Code, members of the public may address the Board on any item of interest to the public that is within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board.  Public comment may be made at this time or may be deferred to when the Board considers the item on the agenda. There is a three-minute limit per person and a twenty-minute limit per topic. It is important to note, whenever a member of the public initiates specific complaints or charges against an employee, the Board president shall inform the complainant that in order to protect the employee's right to adequate notice before a hearing of such complaints and charges, and also to preserve the ability of the Board to legally consider the complaints or charges in any subsequent evaluation of the employee, it is the policy of the Board to hear such complaints or charges in closed session unless otherwise requested by the employee pursuant to Government Code 54957
