McLaren said it came forward to C&I committee and they voted to move it forward.
Peaslee asked for questions on original motion.
Carr asked about procedure because in the past, they didn't discuss the motion before the amendments. Ron English said that amendments come first for discussion and then go back to original motion (with or without amendments depending on amendment votes).
Peters and McLaren were asked to move on their amendments.
McLaren is author of Amendment 1 and is withdrawing it.
Peters - we came forward with the first amendment for dual-adoption - choice, equity and upholding Board policy. Clear they tried hard and in good faith. But Monday they were informed by legal counsel that the MAC was not asked about dual adoption in the first place. Peters said she wasn't sure she believed this ruling.
She understands the problematic issues of dual-adoption and will second amendment to withdraw Amendment 1. She said everyone wants this math adoption to suceed.
McLaren regrets having to withdraw this idea because she believes it to be a good one. Cannot surmount the issues around a dual adoption.
Voted 7-0 to withdraw amendment for dual adoption.
