Live Blog School Board Workshop 4-14-11

I am blogging live from the afternoon school board discussion workshop.

Items of interest:

Julie Collins--office of safe schools gave a detailed, powerpoint presentation on SESIR.

The big take-away from the presentation- SESIR does not police the reporting by districts-They are not an enforcement agency. I asked if it is accurate for the public to judge a school or district by the percentage of incidents reported to SESIR compared to other schools or other districts. The answer was not necessarily.

Oil spill litigation-list of potential firms has been narrowed from 12 to 4. All day meeting will be held April 26th, at which time our Attorney will finalize her recommendation for the School Board with respect to which firm should be hired to represent our interests.
