Governing Board Meeting Agendas & Minutes

Meeting agendas and minutes are posted on the following pages:

Public Participation at Board Meetings

Members of the public are invited to attend meetings of the Board. The Board is subject to Arizona's Open Meeting Law, which limits discussion to those subjects included on the agenda for each meeting. Any individual may comment on any listed agenda item by completing a request form available at each meeting. A completed form can be submitted to any administrator or Board member who will forward it to the presiding officer of the meeting. The individual will be invited to speak when the agenda item indicated is considered by the Board.
The presiding officer or the Board may limit the amount of time allotted to each individual.
Because UESD respects the voices of its parents, staff and community members, the Board welcomes guests to its bi-monthly meetings where opinions and ideas can be expressed.
The public may request that items be included on the agenda. Topics for consideration should be submitted in writing to the superintendent at least seven days prior to the regularly scheduled meeting.

Governing Board Policy

By law, the Governing Board sets District policies and has final authority over all school district business. The district’s policy manual may be viewed at all Union Elementary School District schools and the District Administration Center during regular hours.
The district’s superintendent is appointed by the Governing Board and is charged with the execution of Board policy. The superintendent works closely with the administrative staff when developing recommendations for Board consideration.

Study Sessions

Study sessions are held as needed for the purpose of studying one or more specific issues in depth. No action is taken during a study session. The public is invited to attend. Notification of study sessions is posted at all sites and on the district’s website.
Executive sessions are occasionally scheduled to handle specific Board business matters, which include personnel, legal matters and property purchases. An executive session is closed to the public, but any official action on executive session items is taken during regular Board meetings.
The Union Elementary School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age or disability.
