Here's the Friday Memo section about Bell Times and what different categories of stakeholders thought.
The winner - by a mile- is Modified Flip.
In other District news, the Board is to have a two-hour Executive Session meeting on July 18th to "evaluate the performance of a public employee." I'm thinking since it's two hours, it might be someone up the food chain.
Lastly, I have mentioned this before but the District powers down - way down - in the summer. It's to the point where I believe they just operate with a skeleton crew a lot most of the time. Staff who generally always acknowledge requests are silent.
I always think of this when community members (usually people making comments at ed stories in the Seattle Times) say that teachers only work 10 months a year. That, of course, is only true on the surface and anyone who know a teacher knows that. But it seems the folks at JSCEE are not really around much in the summer either. I suspect that a few, like teachers, are trying to catch up on work and/or sit back with that time and think about the way forward.
But it is a strange thing to not have access to people OR the webpage in any real way.
