Instructional Materials Adoption Meeting Logistics

On March 17, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-29-20 related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Executive Order allows state bodies covered by the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act (Act) to hold public meetings covered by the Act via web and/or audio teleconferencing. As such, the Instructional Materials Adoptions Deliberations will be held as an audio/video teleconference. The Board Room 1101 in the California Department of Education (CDE) will be closed to the public. Please see the Public Comment Guidelines section below for options to view and participate during the meeting.
