We have April Treece and Dick Allen confirmed for a Saturday meeting, April 26th starting at 9:30am. Like the meeting last weekend with Paul Strange and Gary Eberhart, this too is scheduled at Rocco's Restaurant at Ygnacio and Oak Grove. Thanks Rocco.
Over 85% of the over 40 respondents to the poll that was posted here said they'd want to attend this meeting. So hope we have a good turn out.
I encourage everyone to attend. It was clear at last Saturday's meeting that there are many issues at the district, and many of you asked questions about accountability, mistakes, budgeting, future planning, teacher negotiations and overall, who's watching the coop? Some noted that at least one of the board members coming this time has been defensive in the past when asked questions about accountability and the leadership of Gary McHenry. Some noted "blind devotion" to the Superintendent. What will we learn next weekend? I hope you will be there.
My invitation to attend this open forum/Q&A was accepted without any conditions. I described the open forum feeling of the last meeting and expressed my desire for a similar format. They have agreed. To be fair, Linda Mayo can not attend with the other two attending due to rules of the board. Linda Mayo did respond to me after Ms. Treece and Mr. Allen had accepted my invitation to meet.
If you can not attend this meeting, please send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org I will ask them for you and I will post a recap of the meeting like I did last week. What will you want to know from these board members?
Andre Gensburger has also posed the same suggestion on his blog, you can send him questions to be asked too if you can not attend.
