Update: the BAR on capacity management has been amended to a vote for a "preliminary approval of potential list" of 19 childcare classrooms that would be converted to "K-5" homerooms (meaning the Board is only giving tentative approval to this AND if classrooms are converted they are for K-5 uses.) Huzzah!
As well, the Superintendent has asked for a postponement of the ORCA card program vote.
end of update
Just a quick note that the speakers list for the Board meeting tonight is absolutely full with 25 people on the waitlist. The Board meetings continue to be popular.
Most of the speakers are listed to talk about capacity management which I would take to be about the possible closure of up to 19 on-site childcare centers in SPS. There will be a couple of speakers about the ORCA card program. There is no one on the speaker list for EEU but several on the waitlist.
Also a reminder that I will be on a panel tomorrow night, Thursday the 21st, for the 46th Dems to talk about levies and public education funding. Should be a lively discussion. It's at the Mennonite Church at 3128 NE 125th off Lake City Way at 7:30 p.m.
