On April 14, 2013, I flagged that some of the Alton School Board members may have some germane, financial matters related issues, already in the public domain, that they might want to disclose so that we are all on the same chapter so to speak.
Suffice to say that no such disclosures have been forthcoming.
Then, I saw the School Board committee assignments for Prospect Mountain High School (PMHS) in ‘The Baysider‘. That was beyond a joke.
There are a number of words that come to my mind to describe some of these assignments. Shameless is high on the list.
Contrary to what some people think I have no real desire to muck rake or embarrass folks. That is why I urged that the relevant folks make their own disclosures — given that all the pertinent information is already in the public domain. So, I am not going to call out the specific, grossly inappropriate assignments. But lets just say that they had a committee for ‘nutrition and exercise for kids‘. Well it would be like assigning a school board member with a BMI of 35 to that committee. Enough said. At some point this stuff will have to come out. There might even be some legal requirements for disclosure. But, I will let others worry about that, for the time being.
