The CCCCSD School Board will meet virtually via Zoom for their regularly scheduled board meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 20.

The board was originally scheduled to hold their meeting, in person, on July 15. The meeting was canceled due to a lack of a quorum.

The agenda includes a presentation by WRA Architects on the Ozona High School Construction Project and budget workshop.

In March Gov. Greg Abbott suspended a part of the Texas Open Meetings Act that requires a physical gathering space for people to watch the meeting and ask questions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Virtual meetings were always an option, but a public space to watch or listen to the meeting was required. This suspension nixes that.

Virtual meetings must still have 72-hour written notice online with a public toll-free, dial-in number or a free-of-charge video conference link; an online copy of agendas; means for public participation, like two-way audio or video; and public access to recordings of the meetings.

"Our understanding is this is a temporary waiver during this current disaster declaration only. All other parts of the Open Meetings Act remain in force," said Kelley Shannon, executive director of the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas.
