The Mt. Diablo school district’s special education Community Advisory Committee will meet Tuesday.

The district appears to have inadvertently posted this committee’s agenda as an attachment to the Bay Point Master Plan meeting notice (although it is unrelated and takes place the following day):

Since most people would not look for it there, I am posting it below:

9. Public Comment (8:45 – 8:55)
Public comment is an opportunity to share concerns and comments with the CAC. In the interest of time, speakers are limited to three (3) minutes each with a total of fifteen (15) minutes for all speakers. Please respect student and personnel privacy. CAC members and district staff might not be able to respond to individual concerns in this forum, but will take your contact information and follow-up with you.

10. Information Items/Announcements/Adjournment (8:55 – 9:00)


At the last school board meeting, Trustee Gary Eberhart said that all committees that include trustee liaisons should have links to agendas and minutes available on the district’s home page. He said the information is accessible, but not easily.

I actually don’t believe agendas and minutes for the CAC or PAC are posted at all on the district’s website. And it is impossible to link to agendas and minutes for the Bond Oversight Committee because the Measure C website doesn’t include distinct URLs for separate items.

Do you think agendas for the CAC, PAC, BAC, Bond Oversight Committee and other comnmittees such as the Facilities Subcommittee, should be posted online with easy access from the district’s home page?
