November board meetings

November 20, 2020

The “meat” of our regular business meetings is usually either staff slideshow presentation or “action” items. This latest (November 12th) was no exception.

We had a slideshow about “Supports for Students in Distance Learning,” which was basically an update on how distance learning is going. (Various strengths and weaknesses.) You can see the slideshow on the board agenda platform under item 4B.

Among the “Action Items” was proposal to offer the former Falls Elementary School for sale/auction to the highest bidder.

Public comments centered on whether and when to re-open schools to in-person instruction. We’ve previously committed to consider this at our first board meeting of the new year.

Except for Covid-related issues, most of our regular business meetings consist of routine items. Someday I’ll list and describe the routine issues that come up during a typical year.

We also held a special meeting Tuesday to approve waiving our usual no-bid contract provisions. We’ll need to quickly purchase large amounts of personal protective equipment for Covid. We want to be prepared to re-open even before the risk of infection is zero.

In December we’ll be attending (online) the annual education conference put on by our state association, the California School Boards Association (CSBA). It’s a big deal. If not for Covid, we’d have travelled to Anaheim for this. I’ll give you an update next month.
