Board outcomes- last meeting

Everything on the last agenda passed- all the recommendations were approved (policy changes, response to the petition, etc.)

I put forward the following request for information:

that information be provided from the schools that have
experienced repeated late buses in terms of an estimation of how many instructional
minutes have been lost since September and the plans from those principals on how
these lost minutes will be recouped before June. Also, advise of any costs schools
may incur to make up these mandated minutes.

I also put forward the following motion:

That the allotted time for speakers to address the Board be changed from 2 minutes to 3 minutes and the requirement to register ahead of time with the Board Secretary be removed and replaced with a sign-up sheet at every public board meeting.

The motion will be debated at the next board meeting and if you have something to add to the conversation, please feel free to contact Anne Sherwood ( and get on the speakers' list.
