Director Patu came out like a lioness, saying that the district tends to start programs and then, if they drag, stop supporting them. She also said that no, she did not believe these kids could be served elsewhere.
Peaslee said the commitment is there. They will take anything to continue on as a program (AS #1) and Indian Heritage, like WS, has been tossed around. Both know it will take work.
Carr - So I would like to respond to Director Patu's comment about not working to help grow the school. We've had this conversation before when I was on the CAICEE committee and that was back in the '90s. She believes staff HAS tried. I've tried to listen to both groups and both are showing a willingness to work hard and I'm willing to take a chance on it. But I will be watching it closely.
Smith-Blum - if there's a pathway forward, I know staff can help find it.
Martin-Morris and DeBell - no
Rest - yes
Pinehurst is saved (to live another day).
So they will move to Lincoln for two years and then (somehow) Wilson-Pacific after that.
DeBell asked that APP @ Lincoln be considered given it was not "fair" to do this out of nowhere.
