Board Meetings

The Board of Education meets in regular session approximately once every three weeks at 6:00 p.m.

In response to the Governor's Executive Order N-25-20 and Resolution 19/20-17 Delegating Authority to Take Necessary Action to Protect Students and Staff from the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), adopted by the Modesto City Schools (MCS) Board of Education on March 18, 2020, the MCS Board Meetings are closed to the public until further notice in accordance with state guidelines on social distancing. MCS Board Meetings are live-streamed and recorded, and available for viewing at   

Full agendas are available online at the following link Board Agendas, on the Friday afternoon before each meeting as well as in the Superintendent's Office at 426 Locust Street.

In compliance with the Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, if you are Limited English Proficient ("LEP") and need the assistance of an interpreter to participate in this meeting, please contact the Superintendent's office at (209) 574-1616, no later than noon on the Friday preceding the board meeting. This will allow the District to make arrangements for an interpreter to be present to ensure the availability of translation services during the meeting. Interpreters shall translate those portions of the meeting requested by the LEP individual, including statements, discussions, and presentations. Although the District anticipates that most requests by LEP individuals shall be for a Spanish language interpreter, the District shall provide interpreters in other languages as applicable.
