I wasn't able to attend the Executive Committee meeting this morning but Board staff were kind enough to give me the handouts (thanks Lily and Teresa).
As a heads up, a couple of things from the Legislative agenda (aka School Board agenda).
- November 20th. The Growth Boundaries discussion/vote is the fifth Action item on the agenda. Two items ahead of it will likely go quickly but the Special Ed item and possible closure of Pinehurst are likely to have some amount of discussion (and, with any luck, Pinehurst will be pulled off the agenda). Altogether the Boar has 13 Action items to vote on (whew!) plus three Intro items. One of those is acceptance of RTTT money for the three IB programs.
I let you know this simply if you are trying to time your arrival (unless you want to come for Public Testimony but by then, it will all be over but the shouting). If I had to call it, I'd say the Growth Boundaries discussion and vote will not start before 6:30 p.m.
As well, there is no item on either the Action or Intro list for the Mann Building.
This agenda sees the election of new Board officers. I would presume that means that the new Directors will be inducted somewhere between November 20-Dec. 4th. My guess would be Sherry Carr will be the new Board President.
This agenda is a flip of November 20th - only four Action items but 13 Intro items. I note that there are two educational specifications for three BEX buildings - Wilson-Pacific Elementary, Wilson-Pacific Middle School and Thornton Creek. (I suspect that one of those W-P building will be renamed for a Native American leader.)
