I note some running threads through the various regions and their threads on growth boundaries.
For example, there seems to be confusion over how JAMS will open.
Could you write one single burning question (per commenter) that you are either confused about OR seems in direct contradiction to the comments made by parents/community.
I will try to get them together and send them off to Tracy Libros and Flip Herndon.
Also, tomorrow morning is the sign-up for speaking at the School Board meeting on Wednesday, the 16th. It starts at 8 am so do it first thing.
If you want to speak, you must either call 252-0040 - you will get an automated instruction. OR, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your legal name, phone number, e-mail address and your topic. You will be given priority if your topic is on the agenda as an action or intro item. If you do NOT give complete info, your name will NOT be on the speakers list. You will not receive notice you are on the list; check the agenda on Wednesday morning.
A couple of other things:
- two minutes is a short period of time. Practice timing yourself and don't say "thanks for letting me speak" or other filler. Use your time to make - your - point.
- if you sign up and want to cede your time, you MUST be there to cede it over. No one can come to the mic and say, "So and so can't be here and so I'm speaking in his/her place." Not allowed.
- you also cannot speak and then have the next person cede their time to you. It's two minutes per speaker.
- bring handouts and give them to Teresa Hale, Board Adm. Board members like to have these to refer to if they choose comment on what they have heard during the Board remarks. Make these easy to read.
