CPS Board Meeting this Week
Wednesday 10/27 is the October board meeting. We’d been under the impression that the board would vote on the new admissions criteria at this meeting (and that potentially the Blue Ribbon Committee would present their recommendations?)
This link to the meeting agenda doesn’t seem to mention anything about it, but it might be alluded to? Included somewhere that isn’t explicitly stated? These agendas as kind of difficult (and boring) to interpret.
Having served on an LSC, the rules there are that the local school board cannot vote on anything unless it is stated in the agenda ahead of time. Does this mean that it won’t be voted on? I have not idea. Hard to tell with CPS, although in theory we could object if they voted but hadn’t announced it. I think. Let me know your interpretation.
One thing that strikes me when I read these agendas is how much boring crap has to be dealt with in our school system. I know that people make a stink that the CEO of CPS is not an educator. But this is BUSINESS too. Someone needs to deal trucking companies, real estate, contractors, contracts, worker’s compensation, etc. I can’t see a life-long educator necessarily having the skills to deal with that stuff. I kind of like having a business person and an educator working together (assuming they work toward a decent common goal.)
Unfortunately, in CPS, the minutes from one board meeting are not approved until the following meeting, so we cannot look at the SEPTEMBER minutes until after Oct 27. October minutes will be ready in November.
Does anyone know a way to find out if the enrollment stuff was put to vote after the meeting this week (other than going which my job and need not to die from boredom prevent me from attending.)
