I have been told that the reason that the documentation for Ctm meetings cannot be attached is due to ADA issues.  I'll have to investigate if this is an issue for other districts and government entities to fulfill. 

Apparently, though, you CAN receive the documentation if you send an email asking for them.  I wonder if I can do this for all meetings or have to send an individual email for each meeting.

If you would like access to any of the materials for this meeting, you may call 206-252-0040 or email boardoffice@seattleschools.org and the Board Office staff will send committee materials to you promptly.

Also, staff seems to find it useful to just state a Board policy number on an agenda with no explanation, leaving the reader to have to go look up the subject.   Hmmm.
