GO Board Watch: November 15, 2016

Welcome to GO’s School Board Watch for Tuesday, November 15, 2016.

This week’s special meeting is rescheduled from last Wednesday and includes the consent agenda and three charter school public hearings. The rest of the material from last week will likely be heard at future meetings. Last week’s meeting was postponed in anticipation of the thousands of people protesting the election of President-Elect Trump.

This meeting will happen at the usual location at 1050 2nd Ave.  However, future school board meetings will be held in City Hall. The change in location will make the meetings more accessible to the public and less disruptive to students at La Escuelita.

This week’s agenda includes: 

  • Charter school petitions
