Notification of Public Board Meetings

We post notices of the Yuma School District One board meetings in the window at the district office located at 450 W. Sixth Street, Yuma, Arizona, 85364. You'll also find notifications on the Governing Board page, and we also send them to the local media via email. The public may access current and previous board meeting agendas in our archives. We will post the agendas 24 hours prior to meetings. The board and administration welcome public comment. Members of the public are invited to attend board meetings. Any individual may comment on any listed agenda item by completing a request form available at each meeting. The board is subject to Arizona's Open Meeting Law, which limits discussion to those subjects included on the agenda for each meeting.
