There are some interesting items on the Board calendar for this month.
On Wednesday, November 17, the Board has three meetings:
Board Work Session re Scorecard 4:00pm - 5:00pm
This could be interesting because it could lead to some pointed questions about the poor results shown on the scorecard. The District is on pace to meet only four of twenty goals.
Parent Appeal re Curriculum 5:00pm - 5:30pm
Does anyone know what this is about? Is this the appeal of the use of Brave New World as a text? If so, then why is it described as "curriculum" instead of "materials"? I wonder how long it took this person to get their appeal scheduled? I'm having a devil of a time getting an appeal scheduled myself.
Regular School Board Meeting 6:00pm
This is the meeting at which the Board will approve the contract with Teach for America. It would be really great if someone would speak to another issue - any other issue - during the public testimony.
