UPDATE: (Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012 at 2:30 p.m.)—Steve Sanders of Kern County Superintendent of Schools has notified The Mountain Enterprise that the ethics training meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. today has been canceled due to the lack of notice to the public. Rescheduling information will be posted at this website as soon as it is available.
LEBEC, CA (Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012 at 11:40 a.m.)—Christine Lizardi Frazier, the Kern County superintendent of schools, is scheduled to come up to Lebec to help provide training for the El Tejon Unified School District Board of Trustees today at 5 p.m. The session is to review the Ralph M. Brown Act, ethics and conflict of interest for board members.
The workshop is scheduled to be held in Room 9 of El Tejon School. Although it was not announced in an official agenda, it is an assembly of the members of the board (including the board members-elect), so the public has a right to attend.
State law (Government Code section 54952.1) requires that for enforcement purposes of the Brown Act, newly-elected officials must be treated as if they had already assumed that office. A 24-hour notice must be posted for the public prior to a special meeting of the board. The ETUSD district office did not post such a notice for this gathering.
