Amendment Two passes. The district will purchase Math in Focus for K-5 elementary curriculum.
English says amendment was complete replacement for original BAR. Chair should call question on motion AS amendment. In favor is vote for sole adoption of Math in Focus.
Vote goes the same.
(There was great joy in Mudville. I did get a card from the Math in Focus vendors so I will ask about costs which yes, are still negotiable. I thought they were from enVision but was wrong but I have no idea of enVision vendors were in the room.)
The room has cleared mostly. I am pretty tired but I believe it was - to use a Board term - a "robust" discussion. At some point, I will write my analysis of this discussion. I will say that Director Blanford's performance was not good and he continues to be a very weak Board member. No matter your feelings on the subject, it is just impossible to fathom that he did NOT know there was a new amendment.
