Closed Meeting Tuesday: Another Mystery?

The Board of Education will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday at 1200 Myrtle Avenue for a closed session on personnel and legal matters. (Correction: Although the district web site says the time is 6 p.m., the agenda and the legal notice both say the meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.)

Although it is a public meeting, it may be deja vu all over again for those who attended a similar meeting in January. Click here for Plaintalker's post on that meeting.

The exact topics for Tuesday's meeting are not indicated. People could spend hours waiting for an outcome that may not be made public.

My advice is, if you go, bring a project like crocheting an afghan or cleaning out all your cell phone addresses and messages, because it is not bloody likely that you will get any news on the spot. At least you will have something to show for your time.

Have patience and sooner or later all shall be revealed. Me personally, not sure I will volunteer to endure another evening of tedium (not that it wasn't fun to chat with folks).

The agenda posted on the Board of Education's website says it's personnel and litigation. Period. I doubt there will be any public explanation or report, but I could be mistaken.

Why are they in such a hurry?

Maybe they are reviewing PEA's contract? PEA asked staff to vote on it last week, although, I believe, if the board wants to vote on it, they must have a Doctrine of Necessity just for it, same as if the incoming board was to vote on it.

Maybe Dr. Gallon is quitting after seeing what the elections results were!

And maybe, just for a change, someone will let us know if there are any news that were reported!

By the way, the meeting time is confusing. The website says 6 PM, but the agenda says 6:30 PM.

What personnel & litigation matters could they possibly want to consider in such a hurry before the new Board members are sworn in?

Don't they have to write "action will be taken" if it involves any vote??

Goodbye to Gallon! See ya - That's what happens when you don't have the right credentials - YES YOU and your mice.

6:30 PM
