Board meetings are generally held the 2nd Tuesday of the month unless it is a school holiday. Board Meetings are held in the Santa Ynez School Conference Room 4 (*) denotes Special Board Meeting. Please refer to the Agenda for the meeting start time.  



The regular meeting of the College School District Board of Education will be held remotely. As provided for in the Brown Act regarding special meetings of the Board, public comment at this meeting will be limited.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting Executive Orders issued by Governor Newsom regarding procedures for transparency and participation by members of the public at public meetings, state and local legislative bodies have been provided flexibility from certain Brown Act requirements. Specifically, the Executive Orders allow agencies to hold public meetings telephonically or otherwise electronically, and waived requirements for the physical presence of members in order to participate or establish a quorum. Meetings held electronically must allow members of the public to observe and address the meeting electronically. These flexibilities for the Brown Act remain in place while public health officials have imposed social distancing measures.

If you would like to address the CSD Board of Education at the regular meeting, submit your digital public speaking card via email, limited to 250 words or less, to the District Administrative Secretary, Mariana Diaz, by 3:00 p.m. on or before the day of the meeting. Her email address is

Members of the public may request to place items of district concern on the board agenda by contacting the Superintendent in writing at least ten days prior to the next regular meeting.
