May 28 PASD Virtual Board Meeting

Good afternoon,

Governor Inslee issued Proclamation 20-28, which temporarily suspends portions of the Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA) and the Public Records Act (PRA). Proclamation 20-28 is in effect for our District until further notice.

  • School boards conducting regular and special board meetings during the COVID-19 disease outbreak must continue to hold those meetings to be open to the public.
  • The proclamation suspends OPMA language requiring school boards to provide a physical location for the public to attend meetings in-person.
  • The proclamation requires that public attendance at open public meetings be remote (not in-person).
  • The proclamation suspends the ability of school boards to take “action” on matters at a meeting unless they are: (1) matters necessary and routine, or (2) necessary to respond to the outbreak and current public health emergency. This means you will need to confine board meeting topics to those meeting the above criteria and other matters will need to wait.
    • Therefore the regular scheduled (7:00 p.m.) Board of Directors meeting on Thursday, May 28th, 2020 will be held via Google Meet.
    • This meeting is only open to the public remotely. It is an informational meeting with no Public Comment. You may submit your written public comment to jwilson@portangelesschools.org by 5:30pm Wednesday, May 27th.
