As we previously stated, Director Peaslee is having her Community Meeting tonight from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Lake City Library. However, I received an e-mail notice that it was a "capacity management" meeting that included Pegi McEvoy.
This is NOT a new meeting on the short-term interim plan but merely Director Peasleee's regularly scheduled community meeting. Any number of topics might be discussed. (It is not typical to have a district administrator attend a director's community meeting but Ms McEvoy stated that she is going to listen.)
In terms of last night's Board meeting, I was only able to stay for the public testimony but it was overwhelmingly against the co-housing of a new middle school in the JA building with JA K-8.
A number of parents especially from John Rodgers and Sacajawea stated they had been "promised" at the last couple of capacity meetings that there would be NO changes to the assignment plan for 2013-2014. I myself did not hear this as a promise but yes, it was stated no changes would be occurring for next year in the NSAP.
More on this topic later.
