The Board will be meeting this week for their regular legislative meeting. The agenda is posted here. As you can see, most of the Board's work is either routine approvals as required by law or property management work. They spend very little of their time on learning and teaching and less still on policy work.
The Finance Committee meets on Thursday at 3:30. Their agenda is supposed to be here. As of this moment, however, they have yet to post the agenda. The one they show now is the agenda from their last meeting on March 20.
The Operations Committee meets the same day, Thursday, at 4:30. Their agenda is here. The two elements I find interesting here are the Garfield/Interbay Land Swap (what the heck is that?), and the BEX Communication Presentation. There are other references, here and there, of a BEX Communication Plan, but I can find no plan nor any evidence of a plan. According to the Operations Committee agenda, Don Gillmore will be presenting community engagement opportunities. I wonder if they will be engagement opportunities or communications opportunities. The difference is who is talking and who is listening.
Yesterday the Board had a four hour "workshop" regarding the 2008-2009 Budget and the Southeast Inititiative. I wonder how that went. No materials from that meeting are publicly available right now.
Prior to tonight's Board meeting, the Board will have a "Work Session" regarding High School Math Adoption. That's from 4:00 to 5:30.
On Monday, the 14th, there will be a Public Hearing on Use of I-728 Funds.
So in the span of seven days we have a Regular Board Legislative Meeting, a Board Workshop, a Board Work Session, two Committee Meetings, and a Public Hearing. Busy, busy, busy. The only meeting for which information is available is the Regular Board meeting which may well be the least interesting of them all: mostly routine BEX II and BEX III approvals.
If anyone was at the the Board Workshop yesterday, please do report on it. I expect we'll get a report of this afternoon's Math Adoption meeting from Dan. If anyone attends the Committee meetings or the Public Hearing, I hope they will report on them as well.
