SCHOOL BOARD SPECIAL MEETING AGENDA
I. 6:30 p.m. Call the Meeting to Order
Welcome and Introductions
II. 6:35 p.m. Presentation of the Board – Equity of High School Choice Policy
The Barstow Unified Union School Board would like your input on whether the voters should
refine the Barstow High School Choice options. More specifically, the change being considered
for a public vote is to limit the options to the three public schools used by 95% of Barstow
graduates who choose public schools: Rutland High School, Otter Valley High School and
Proctor High School.
III. 6:40 p.m. Public Forum – The forum will be moderated by Linda Reis.
Thank you for coming to speak to the board. We appreciate your time, and we are happy for you
to use this part of the meeting to get your comments on record and to our attention. If there are
multiple comments, each person will be limited to two minutes to ensure that all get to speak.
When you speak, please state your name and the topic of your comments before you begin. After
you have finished we may ask clarifying questions, and the superintendent or board chair may
offer helpful resources about your topic, but we will not have a board discussion of any topics
other than those on the published agenda. The board’s expectation is that if an issue is something
the board should act on, the superintendent will follow up and bring it to the board through the
agenda planning process.
