Given that we don’t miss many ACS School Board meetings, and I do pay some attention to what is being said, I do not think this is correct.
But, it was on the ACS Website all through this crucial weekend — as parents get ready for the first day of school on Tuesday, August 27.
It would be really, really good IF there is indeed a Board Meeting on Monday.
IF this is a mistake it will be quite embarrassing for the administration. Deanna has already fired off e-mails to the school and I have given a heads-up to a ‘friend’.
I get a feeling that the ACS Superintendent, Bill Lander, for obvious reasons, is doing his best to either not have a revote or have it done in ‘private’ or even by phone. If he does we will still bring it up a the next school board.
These shenanigans involving Alton taxpayer money has to stop.
We are not being told anything about the 3rd party, independent bullying investigation that took place over the Summer. I am fairly certain that the Board paid for that investigation. At a minimum I want to know how much was paid. IF you were an Alton taxpayer wouldn’t you like to know.
One of the big problems is that this is a Board with secrets who love to do things in secret. That hardly anybody turns up to their ever so non-transparent meetings just emboldens a few of them. I wish more folks would attend, or at least watch the tapes.
