Given the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact California’s response has had on a local educational agency’s (LEA’s) ability to meaningfully engage with stakeholders, Executive Order N-56-20 was established. This Executive Order extended the deadline for the adoption of the 2020–21 Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) from July 1, 2020, to December 15, 2020.
Instead, Executive Order N-56-20 requires that all LEAs complete this COVID-19 Operations Written Report to explain the changes to program offerings that the LEA has made in response to school closures to address the COVID-19 emergency, the major impacts of such closures on students and families, and a description of how the LEA is meeting the needs of its unduplicated students.
The COVID-19 Operations Written Reports were approved by the ACUSD and ACOE Board of Trustees on June 24, 2020. Please follow the link below to view the reports.
Current Brown Act Guidance – Board Meeting Options
The safety and wellness of students, families, and school personnel are the highest priorities of all Amador County Public Schools. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Newsom’s stay at home order, Amador County School Board of Trustees will be conducting their meetings under the Brown Act via teleconferencing and limited personnel in compliance with Governor Newsom’s March 17, 2020, Executive Order N-29-20.
The Order temporarily gives legislative bodies the option to use but does not require the use of, a modified method of teleconferencing to hold meetings subject to the Brown Act. The following options are allowed per the Order:
- Any or all legislative body members may attend any meeting (i.e., regular, special or emergency) by teleconference.
- The District does not need to provide a location to be accessible to the public.
- The agency is not required to post the agenda at any teleconference location.
To ensure that members of the public have access to the meeting and are able to participate in public comments, the Board will use Zoom teleconferencing to host the meeting. Members of the public can access the meeting via telephone or video conference. Information for accessing the meeting is posted on our webpage.
