Here is the agenda for the School Board Retreat for July 7 & 8. The public will have the opportunity to address the Board regarding views regarding reopening schools. The Board will be meeting in person for the retreat meetings as well as having meals together. However, the Board will leave prior to the public speaker portion of the meeting. The speaker portion of the meeting will be via ZOOM.
I requested to have the speaker portion in-person but was overruled. If you wish to speak to the Board on the topic of School Reopening, this will be your opportunity. Instructions for speaking: Remarks are limited to four minutes per person. Requests to address the Board are made through the clerk of the Board by calling 757.263.1016 by noon the day of the meeting.
A few weeks ago, the Board chose to have a 4 1/2 hour IN PERSON closed meeting to evaluate the superintendent and to vote to give him a $12,000 bonus and extend his contract (I voted NO). However, the Board cannot take the time to hold an in-person hearing to listen to our very important stakeholders (the community) on the very important topic of reopening our schools.
