The school board meeting of Dec. 9th.

This is three and a quarter hour meeting. I have not watched it and don't know that I will have the opportunity.  If anyone else watches and would like to summarize and highlight the good parts, I will post your summary on this page.

Meeting are much more interesting if you know what is going on. The school board publishes great agendas and you can get your own copy of this 232-page agenda at this link.

I can normally watch most meetings in double time or time and half and do not lose much content. If you are not offered that option when viewing the Video, follow this link and click "request the HTML5 Player."

Below is a News Channel 5 report on this school board meeting but doesn't us very tell much. Follow the link to see the full report including a video.
