I finally finished the notes I had taken on the first hour+ of the latest School Board meeting. I think it worthy reading for several issues.
- enrollment is continuing to increase
- NCLB waiver and the Senate bill designed to get it back
- why SPS isn't funding IB textbooks
- artificial caps on enrollment at some schools
- Africatown MOU
That last one is pretty eye-opening as it featured a last-minute change to the MOU, a blank space for the dollar amount on the lease document, and a question about any religious connections for this learning center that Africatown is running.
Very odd and very troubling.
