      About the Board of Education

      • They are elected by voters in the community for a term of four years. Board elections take place in November every other year. New board members are sworn in on or after the first Friday of December following elections. The board elects its president and clerk each year in December.

        All school board meetings, except closed sessions, are open to the public. Regular meetings are scheduled at least six months in advance, but the schedule may change.  All changes are posted on the website. Regular meetings are held in the Lovonya DeJean Middle School Multipurpose Room, 3400 Macdonald Ave., Richmond. Public session begins at 6:30 p.m.

        Live television broadcast of regularly scheduled Board meetings is available by the City of Pinole on PCTV Channel 26/28, the City of Richmond KCRT Channel 28 and the City of Hercules Cable Channel 28.  Please check the city websites for local listings of broadcast schedules.
