Policy Review Committee "SPECIAL" Meeting TODAY to "redo" their previous meetings. The disaster that is the VB School Board continues......
Watch the meeting live for yourself at 4pm today at this link.
I watched the previous "special" meeting that the PRC held last week and noticed that the chair of the committee was not following the by-laws. She would call for a vote without a motion or even stating what they were voting on. She didn't even call for a vote on every item. I pointed this out to the Chair of the Board and to our attorney, perhaps that is why they have called another "special" meeting.
Apparently this is how they have been operating in other meetings also. The attached agenda shows 120 pages worth of by-laws and policies they want to retake votes on before tomorrow's School Board meeting.
Some of the topics include: the Transgender Policy, limiting access to the public, requiring permits to gather in the parking lot, banning flags aka "cloth symbols" from being brought onto the grounds and into the chambers of our meetings, reduce the amount of time that a speaker can speak,....and more.
I guess it is so important for some Board members to be sure they get these policy and by-law changes on tomorrow's meeting agenda in order to be able silence the public as soon as they can.
My vote would be to stop trying to silence the public. Stop trying to silence other Board members and get on with the business of the students and our fiscal responsibilities as Board members. However, only the Chair and Vice-Chair of the School Board have authority over the agenda so I will just keep swimming upstream to raise awareness about the tyrannical actions that this board continues to bring forward.
