Is there a better way?

Original post made by JSD, Palo Verde, on Nov 10, 2010

I tried to watch the entire Board of Education meeting last night, in real time, from home. I fell asleep just past midnight, when the information presentation about MI was still underway and the discussion hadn't even begun.

Why put two hot button topics on the same evening? A better way would have to done these on separate evenings, even by adding an extra meeting.

The MI discussion, although quite important, is not as time sensitive as the calendar. Many people do need to start requesting vacation time for next year before the end of December so this is time sensitive.

Having or not having MI available for next year does not have to be announced until January Kinder registration time.

An extra meeting should have been scheduled for MI.
