Office of Student Life FAQs

The Renegade Pantry will be offering a drive-through service with limited hours during the physical closure. Upon arrival to campus, please call (661) 395-4841 and our staff will bring the items to you. Please do not exit your vehicle, but show us your BC ID. While our team has been aggressively pursuing nutritional supplies to alleviate the burden of food insecurity on our students, the nature of this evolving situation means that we are running out fast. We encourage members of our community to come get what they need before it’s all gone. More information is available online at the Pantry Webpage.

BCSGA will follow the Executive Order N-25-20 issued by the California Governor in relation to the Brown Act for its essential meetings.

The California Governor has issued Executive Order N-25-20 and paragraph 11 and its subsections state in relation to the Brown Act:

Notwithstanding any other provision of state or local law, including the Bagley-Keene Act or the Brown Act, a local legislative body or state body is authorized to hold public meetings via teleconferencing and to make public meetings accessible telephonically or otherwise electronically to all members of the public seeking to attend and to address the local legislative body or state body, during the period in which state or local public officials impose or recommend measures to promote social distancing, including but not limited to limitations on public events. All requirements in both the Bagley-Keene Act and the Brown Act expressly or impliedly requiring the physical presence of members, the clerk or other personnel of the body, or of the public as a condition or participation in quorum for a public meeting are hereby waived.

In particular, any otherwise-applicable requirements that:

  • State and local bodies notice each teleconference location from which a member will be participating in a public meeting;
  • Each teleconference location be accessible to the public;
  • Members of the public may address the body at each teleconference conference location;
  • State and local bodies post agendas at all teleconference locations;
  • At least one member of the state body be physically present at the location specified in the notice of the meeting and
  • During teleconference meetings, a least a quorum of the members of the local body participate from locations within the boundaries of the territory over which the local body exercises jurisdiction

Are hereby suspended, on the conditions that:

  • Each state or local body must give advance notice of each public meeting, according to the timeframe otherwise prescribed by the Bagley-Keene Act or the Brown Act, and using the means otherwise prescribed by the Bagley-Keene Act or the Brown Act, as applicable; and
  • Consistent with the notice requirement in paragraph (1), each state or local body must notice at least one publicly accessible location from which members of the public shall have the right to observe and offer public comment at the public meeting, consistent with the public’s rights of access and public comment otherwise provided for by the Bagley-Keene Act and the Brown Act, as applicable (including, but not limited to, the requirement that such rights of access and public comment be made available in a manner consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act).

In addition to the mandatory conditions set forth above, all state and local bodies are urged to use sound discretion and to make reasonable efforts to adhere as closely as reasonably possible to the provisions of the Bagley-Keen Act and the Brown Act, and other applicable local laws regulating the conduct of public meetings, in order to maximize transparency and provide the public access to their meetings.
