Board Discussion Item
50. Robinson - Take our Sons and Daughters to Work Day

Minutes: 

Dr. Robinson requested clarification from staff why Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day was canceled.

Nat Harrington stated that Principals felt it was disruptive to the educational program at the schools especially since it falls during F-CAT black out.

Dr. Johnson stated field trips during F-CAT black out have to be an educational enrichment activity.

Dr. Robinson asked several questions regarding the activity such as:  do students receive an excused absence; changing it to Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day in Palm Beach County and making it another date.

Mrs. Burdick clarified that staff needs to bring the issue forward for discussion on a workshop/meeting agenda.

Dr. Johnson reviewed the advertising and funding concerns by staff.

Mr. Barbieri stated that the process needs to be outlined for staff as soon as possible so the contracts don't back up.

57. Barbieri - FSBA Training

Minutes:

Mr. Graham outlined the training options.

Mrs. Burdick stated that the New Board Member Orientation is a great meeting for new Board Members to attend.

 

58. Robinson - Procedures for Selecting the Next General Counsel
