REMINDER: Board Work Session, March 23, 2009

Just a reminder, the Board of Education will hold a work session at 6 p.m. on Monday March 23, at the Jesse L. Starkey Administration Building in La Plata. The meeting will also be aired live on Comcast Channel 96. The agenda is not available for you to view on BoardDocs yet, but eventually you will be able to go here and see it. Until then, you can see it below.

***I will try to refrain from personal comments about the agenda ***

Public Forum

Work Session

  • Safety in Schools
  • Chairman's update on Board poll about alternative schedules, Code of Student Conduct for sexual offenses, ticker tape of school incidents and Board member notification of incidents.

I saw the work session, and was quite pleased with the comments made by the speaker during Public Forum. I share her views. Mr. Wade handled this “Future Agenda Items” issue poorly – very poorly: It was not addressed properly during the March 10 meeting, and his implementation of the “anonymous poll” only served to amplify the botch. The discussion that took place during the work session is in keeping with how such issues should have been addressed by the board and its members.

I thank you, Ms. Abell, for making yourself accessible and responsive to constituents and their concerns. Communication is key, and public issues are PUBLIC issues. Your use of technology and your awareness of the guidance provided by the Public Information Act and the Open Meetings Act facilitate communication and compliance.

Jennifer is doing a great job, but I think that it's heinous that these dopes are covering up all the violence in the schools.
They just had an incident in one of the middle school where a boy tried to lock a girl in a bathroom stall (for whatever reason, offer up one guess), but she got away.

So what do we need to have done to post this stuff on Jennifer's blog?

I just need citizens to email me the incidents and i'll post on my ticker
