Lagunita’s School Board is comprised of three members who represent the district. Each member is elected by the voters and serves a four-year term. Annually, the Board elects a Board President and a Board Clerk. The Board meets monthly, on the third Tuesday of the month at 6 PM, unless a meeting is scheduled in advance or rescheduled in open session (schedule below). Board meetings include open session discussion and decision making, reports to the board and community, public comment, public hearings, and closed session meetings as needed.
