Public Verbal Comments

This communication item is included on the agenda of each regular board meeting to provide an opportunity for citizens to make suggestions or identify concerns about matters affecting the district, or to suggest an item be scheduled for a future agenda. The board may not have complete information available to answer questions and may refer specific concerns to the staff for appropriate attention. Discussion of personnel matters is inappropriate for open session. The board is committed to protecting the privacy interests of district personnel. Should any member of the public wish to discuss a personnel matter, it must first be brought to the attention of the assistant superintendent of personnel services. Speakers are cautioned that under California law, no person is immune from liability for making intentionally false or defamatory comments regarding any person simply because those comments are made at a public meeting.

Please limit comments to three minutes per individual. Total time for public input is limited to 45 minutes.

Action Items

 
 

10.

ACT TO APPROVE RESOLUTION 10-05 RE PERS GOLDEN HANDSHAKE (Mrs. Sanders)

A part of the Classified Retirement Incentive includes the option of the PERS Golden Handshake. Government Code 20904 allows school employers to offer the Golden Handshake (two year retirement incentive). This incentive will add two years of service credit to the member's CalPERS account at the time of retirement. The first step in offering the Golden Handshake is to discuss the cost of providing this benefit at a public meeting at least two weeks prior to adoption of a board resolution. This was an informational item at the February 10, 2010, board meeting, so this requirement has been met. The second step is to adopt a board resolution with the window period in which the incentive will be offered.

The recommended action is to approve the CalPERS Golden Handshake Resolution 10-03 as presented.
