A joint meeting? Sounds like high hopes will rebound.

Don’t get your hopes up. Look at the Agenda. Read what it says in Public Comment. Note it says that the Public MAY ONLY speak on items listed on the Agenda and nothing else! Once you have spoken on an item that will be it for you. No more chances to ask question about what is yet to be said. Wonder why this Meeting is being held on School District Property when ALL of the other meetings with City Councils have been held in their Council Chambers under more open and transparent conditions?? Makes you wonder about this “new and open” District Board.

It’s an hour and a half meeting. If they don’t limit it to questions on the agenda, it will just turn into a never-ending b!tch session.

Funny how you are getting all up in arms that there’s no chance to speak to the board about other topics. Did you know you can go to any board meeting and speak about whatever you want during public comment? Not many people do.

You are making a leap to blame the school district that the meeting is being held at the district and not Concord City Hall. Where’s the city’s cojones to insist it needs to be at their chambers or at CHS?

And you are already questioning transparency? Geez. Complainers gonna complain!

After reading the agenda.. They are talking AT each other not WITH each other. This is not designed to collaborate, but merely to inform. What’s the point of that? Read each other’s websites! This is just PR. A waste of time.
