Director McLaren Community meeting at Delridge Library from 1:15-3:15 p.m.
Audit&Finance Committee Meeting (audit) from 4-6 p.m. Agenda includes
- MLK FAME covenant compliance update where we find out if FAME is honoring its agreement with SPS,
- a 2010-2011 Financial, Federal and Accountability audit update (not sure what this is),
- ALE policy update
- a "special attention" item from Director Carr called "A&F operating rhythm."
Eckstein's meeting seem to focus more on capacity issues especially Lowell at Lincoln. Denny's meeting seemed to focus on issues around Arbor Heights/Roxhill. I was a little surprised as I didn't see as many parents from Alki, Lafayette or Schmitz Park as I thought might come out. It will be interesting to see the focus from the communities in the Mercer area.

It retains original shape and appearance with use.
It has a life expectancy of over two years.
It most often represents an investment of $2-5k or more. This includes land, buildings,building improvements, and furniture, fixtures and equipment.
- There is also a follow-up item on International education funding which I have been meaning to write a thread about since it has been under discussion. This might be the week to do it.
