Board Agendas & Materials 2013-14 through 2017-18

Regular Board Meetings are the sessions conducted by the Board to conduct the business of the District and take official action.

Board Workshops are informational in nature and the discussions are informal.

Meeting documents are available as PDF files or as a "bundle" of PDF files, Adobe Portfolio. Viewing of Adobe Portfolio files requires Adobe Reader, version 8 or higher; Adobe X — a free download available at Adobe.com — works best.
