October 13 Board Meeting

It's a busy board meeting on Tuesday. In particular, the Transportation Review report (item 9) contains a lot of critical information that I would recommend everyone read. (You can read the full reports by visiting the Board Agendas Link, under Helpful Links to the right of this post). We will be discussing changing the boundaries to Ward H (Trustee Ripley) and Ward F (Trustee Fleming) in report 4. We will be discussing declaring 18 school sites surplus in report 6. In item 7, there is a motion to consider withdrawing from the Public School Board Association. My prediction is this meeting will extend beyond 9 PM. My guess- 10 PM.

The outcomes from the October 13, 2009 board meeting will be posted October 14, 2009

Here's an abbreviated version of the agenda, as you can see, comments from the Public and Staff Groups is near the front of the agenda, following Improving Student Achievement. If you would like to comment on anything related to education, you may do so at this time, with no need for advance registration. You will have 2 minutes to speak. If you want to speak to a specific item on the agenda, you need to register with Anne Sherwood ( by noon on Tuesday. Happy Thanksgiving all!
