Welcome to the LUHSD Board Meeting page! In an effort to improve the ability to easily access information, we have combined much of the information into one place. Documents from 2010 and earlier can still be accessed from the archive page. We hope that this new format meets these expectations.
The purpose of this page is to promote transparency in the operation of the school board. You will find information regarding upcoming and past board meetings, audio recordings, information about the Board members, events and other important information connected with the LUHSD school board. This information is presented with the goal to improve all our schools within the Lassen Union High School District.
