Update: I am told there will be some kind of protest/gathering before the Board meeting tonight over the issue of the Center School teacher. I believe there will be some media presence including tv. I'm not sure this is the best way for the district to end the school year (this being the last Board meeting before the last day of school) but that was someone's choice to have made.
Should all make for an interesting evening.
End of update.
As predicted, the speaker list for the School Board meeting is filled to capacity with what may be a record 28 on the waiting list.
The majority of speakers will be about The Center School and the possible transfer of teacher, Jon Greenberg. I really think this could be a rookie mistake for Banda (a la Enfield and Principal Floe). I hope they just quietly let this one go.
Also, a few speakers on Special Ed which is good and I hope someone gives them a cheerful earful. One person who many of you might not know but consistently shows up, cheerful and ready to help is Joe Szwaja. Joe ran once for School Board and is a huge (and very informed) person on green issues. I note he is speaking on "sustainable cafeteria silverware." He's a teacher at Nova.
I also see a number of speakers on the waitlist to talk about "reinstating Catherine Blaine teacher." Anyone know what that is about? I know there had been some issue around the principal not wanting to allow a FEAT committee (parent engagement) at Blaine but I don't know what this issue is.
