Will we play "truth or dare", "follow the leader" or "mad libs"?

In what ways are stakeholders, including system and school staff, given opportunities to provide leadership and to contribute to the decision-making process?*

* From the Sacrosanct S.A.C.S. Standard Assessment Report to be approved this Board Meeting.

Here is the Agenda Summary.

Let's keep an eye out for the results.

There's been a time change to 3:30 p.m.for Thursday's meeting, which I see you have reflected on your post. I thought maybe you might want a separate post to remind everyone that coming late to the meeting will be just fine!

A push against the SACS report cover-up would be an excellent use of teachers' time.

At the board meeting last night, I said that I was going to report to the US Dept. of Education about any cover-ups of mistreatment of students and teachers that I discovered in the report.

Then Candy Olson, seconded by Beelzebub Gonzalez, said that secondary-school-as opposed to college--has no Dept of Education oversight.

I am researching that now. But there is nothing to prevent teachers caviling to the Department of Education and the legislative delegation--esp. our two senators about any lying done in the SACS report.

When in doubt, squawk is my rule. lee

Goodeye, Ms. Susie, on the quote from SACS. I have not yet got around to it, but I want to write the head of SACS for k-12 and ask him whether the K12 SACS has Department of Health oversight or whether it's just an incestuous little bubble of covering each other's ass with this pretend review. If you read that SACS outline, you will be scratching your head about what in the dickens the flatulent terminal educationese language means.

Everybody who did not attend the Thursday 3 1/2 hour meeting with the Tribune biggies missed a whale of a good time. Fun was had by all, and the teachers who came filled the room and filled the Trib editorial muckety-mucks with information about teachers' wretched state under straw boss Elia and her henchpeople on the board. Goader was there in fine fittle. I want him to explain to me the way Elia structures the class offerings in plain English that I can understand so that I can file an ethics grievance under the following that Bart Birdsall found on the Web. You have to make money to merit punishment under this ethics law. I know because I have already tried it on moral turpitude for Elia and got turned down. lee drury de cesareETHICS LAWS
