I have fielded dozens of emails about Newpoint, many of which describe conditions at district schools that hastened a decision to choose Newpoint over traditional schools.
The closure decision will be made Tuesday evening at the Board's regular meeting, but a significant discussion of this issue is slated to occur today at 1:30. The decision was made to make this a time-certain 1:30 so that once discussion on this item begins, it can continue until completion, for continuity.
I have many questions that I'll be asking. Many will be uncomfortable yet necessary.
