RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Yavapai County Attorney's Office (YCAO) maintains an attorney-client relationship with YCSS and PUSD and may periodically provide legal advice to them. The YCAO recognized that Prescott Unified School District No. 1 may have independent legal counsel. Nonetheless, the YCAO maintains an attorney-client relationship with Prescott Unified School District No. 1 as the YCAO may periodically provide legal advice to it pursuant to A.R.S. 11-532. PUSD No. 1's "client" status does not change even if it uses independent legal representation. It is also possible that all parties to the above-referenced matter(s) may eventually ask the YCAO for legal services.

8.B. STUDY AND VOTING SESSION
  
8.B.1. Consider approving a change to the Prescott Unified School District Calendar for 2020-2021, as presented. 

RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Currently, the PUSD calendar has a professional development in-service day scheduled for Tuesday, February 16, 2021. District administration is proposing to make a formal calendar change moving that professional development in-service day to Friday, February 12, 2021. During hybrid learning, all students have an at-home learning day on Fridays, so moving the in-service day to a Friday will minimize disruption to in-person learning. On February 12th, students will not be required to log into their classes, and all teacher office hours and tutoring will be canceled for that day because teachers will be participating in professional development. This is a non-instruction day for students but a workday for teachers.
