Update of BOE meeting 8/22/06

The MNPS board secretary confirmed that the wording for GP3.10 which passed 9-0 on the consent agenda was the same one discussed at the last BOE meeting and pulled by me for a specific vote. At that time the board voted to remove it all together and now this board has reinstated it without discussion.

"Facilitating timely and efficient communications with the administration and constituents by offering to each Board member the use of a district provided laptop or a residential fax line with fax machine.”

Yep. Five African American members and only one on the Committee to Evaluate. So, twenty percent of AA members on the committee and 75% of the white members. This committee has been stacked with pro-Garcia members. And it begins.

Steve Glover shouldn't be on the committee and Karen Johnson (we're not sure where she stands, so presumably she's open minded) should.
