Agenda
1. CALL TO ORDER, PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, PLEDGE TO THE TEXAS FLAG
As a result of a state proclamation declaring a Temporary Suspension of Open Meetings Laws issued on March 16, 2020, designed to advance the public health goal of limiting face-to-face meetings (also called "social distancing"), this FSHISD Board Meeting will be conducted via videoconferencing, which will be audible to the Board and public and allow for two-way communication.

The Board President, presiding officer or trustees may not be physically present at one location but a quorum will be required for the meeting. The public may access this meeting via the FSHISD Facebook page at www.facebook.com/FSHISD. An electronic copy of the agenda packet may be viewed on the district’s website, located at www.fshisd.net.

A recording of the meeting will be available for viewing on the District’s website. Public comments should have been emailed to boardmeeting@fshisd.org prior to the beginning of the meeting by any member of the public wishing to address the Board of Trustees on an agenda item.
