• During our May 1st Special Board meeting, some attendees interrupted the meeting by using inexcusable language while participants were speaking. We sincerely apologize to all of the participants and especially to the staff member and student who were speaking at the time of the disruptions. We take this incident very seriously and want our community to know that Folsom Cordova Unified School District does not condone or tolerate hate speech, slurs, or any such racist behavior as was displayed during our meeting.

    Anyone attending a Board meeting who displays such inappropriate behavior in the future will be immediately removed from the meeting.

    To the extent possible, staff are doing everything they can to provide a safe environment for the public to attend our School Board meetings. We appreciate and thank those who attend our Board meetings with respect and kindness for others. 

    Board President Clark and Superintendent Koligian

    NOTICE: The recording of our May 1 board meeting was edited to remove the inappropriate language from the recording. Please excuse any inconvenience this may have caused while the video was down during this process. Thank you for understandng.
