Thank you for the time to speak tonight. I look forward to the Board bringing public board meetings back into the community. However, I am concerned about statements made at the January 21st board meeting regarding the community meetings. It was stated that the meetings would not be ‘official’ board meetings. If the community meetings are not official Board of Education meetings then:
- Only two members of the seven member board would be present.
- The public business if our schools would not be occurring in public.
- Discussion and public comments would not be part of public record.
I request that the community meetings be official Board of Education meetings. I understand that coordination of these meetings can be challenging. Mr. Larsen, I would be happy to meet with you to discuss how I could help with coordination of the community Board meetings.
