Tonight's BOE meeting agenda

First Board of Education meeting of 2010 tonight (same Bat time, 7:30 p.m., same Bat place, Ed Center 3rd floor). Some highlights from the agenda:

-- Update on the Referendum. By now you should have heard the good news that the state is NOT holding our grant money. We'll also hear from our bond attorneys and financial advisors re: our bond issue rating.

-- New middle school schedule and courses for 2010-2011

-- Discussion of Race to the Top, and whether the District should participate in the state's bid for Federal funds. (I've written about my misgivings in the past, click here to read.)

The usual financial approvals, personnel changes of assignment, resignations, additions, etc.
