The Governing Board is the policy-making body of the school district. It has the authority and responsibility to provide an educational program for students living within the district but must work within the framework of State and Federal law.
A board member's first and greatest concern must be the educational welfare of the students attending the public schools. (see policy BCA - Board Member Ethics)
Monthly Governing Board meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month, at 6:00 p.m., in the Boardroom at the District Office.
The Lake Havasu Unified School District # 1 endeavors to ensure accessibility of all its programs, facilities, and services to all persons with disabilities. If you need reasonable accommodations, please contact Terry Fleming as early as possible.
Members of the Lake Havasu Unified School District Governing Board will attend either in person or by technological devices such as speakerphone, internet, or other devices.
When necessary, the Board may vote to go into Executive Session intermittently throughout the meeting, which will not be open to the public, for discussion and consultation for legal advice regarding any of the agenda items (A.R.S. § 38-431.03 (A)(3)). The Board may also vote to go into Executive Session, which will not be open to the public, to discuss personnel matters (A.R.S. § 38-431.03(A)(1)), records exempt by law from public inspection (A.R.S. § 38-431.03(A)(2)), or for legal advice and consultation regarding pending or contemplated litigation (A.R.S. § 38-431.03(A)(4)). The Board reserves the right to change the order of items on the Agenda and to call matters in random order.
Meetings of the Governing Board may be audio or video recorded, which may result in the audio or video recording of a minor child. Pursuant to A.R.S. 1-602(A)(9), subject to certain express statutory exceptions, parents have a right to consent before the State or any of its political subdivisions make a video or audio recording of a minor child. In order to exercise their rights, parents may either file written consent with the District, consenting to such recording, or take affirmative steps to ensure that their child is not present when a recording may be made. Should the child be present at the time a recording is made, this right will be considered to have been waived.
A visitor may speak to the governing board during the Call to the Public. (see policy BEDH - Public Participation at Board Meetings)
In normal situations, visitors are requested to keep their remarks as concise as possible.
Board Meeting notices are posted at least 24 hours prior to a meeting at each school location (see directory) and on the district website.
