Some of the items on tonight’s board agenda:
We’ll discuss the state Department of Education’s accreditation report on our district’s Special Education practices. You can read the report here.
We’ll vote on approval of the proposed 2016-17 school calendar.
We’ll hear an update from the district’s sustainability committee.
We have a work session scheduled to continue our discussion of secondary boundaries. My guess is that we will probably have to wait until the election of a new board member to settle the question of what our secondary school boundaries will be. I submitted a letter to the board listing some “grandfathering” issues that we could discuss. It’s hard to do any kind of extensive grandfathering in conjunction with our boundary changes, especially since we need to make sure we populate the new schools we are opening, but there are some limited circumstances where I think some exceptions to our usual rules would make sense.
The full agendas are here and here. Please chime in with a comment on anything that catches your attention.
