Board Of Education To Finalize Restructuring

I Apologize for this late notice but the board of education will be meeting tonight.at 6:30. I’ve been so busy I forgot about it. Ooops! If you can’t attend the meeting you can watch it online using this link  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ccps-boe-test. Sometimes the link doesn’t work so you can also access it by going to http://www.ustream.com and in the search box at the top of the screen enter “CCPS BOE” (all caps & space in the middle). That will bring up the channel for the board. If the meeting is already in process a box will appear and ask you if you want to watch live. If they are not live a choice of videos will be provided and you can click the date you want to view.  I’ve provided tonight’s agenda at the end of this post.

This will be the second meeting with the new board. As reported last week, Dr. Michael Kuduk is leading the board and has a number of changes he intends to make. At the top of the list is putting the public back in our public education system. Last week Dr. Kuduk made clear his intent to turn the board from an internal focus to a focus on students, employees and the community. His leadership goals will likely be an important aspect of tonight’s meeting.

New vice-chair Michael McGowan, known for his exceptional ability to break down jargon into real terms, is also in-line with the community focus. During middle school merger meetings and the candidate forum he articulated the very real results of the ramifications of board decisions. He removed the fluff we had come to expect from the previous board and made clear our options and projected outcomes of each.

Last week, Ashley Ritchie stunned as she behaved like a 5-year board veteran rather than a newly elected member. Her uncanny insight into the hearts and minds of a younger generation is unprecedented. Last week Ashley silenced anyone who may have questioned her ability. She arrived early and was in her chair reviewing board documents and expressed her thoughts and  provided insight. District 5, once a silent “yes man” seat now has a confident, focused voice.

This board is like none other. Typically high profile positions as this board has taken on, often creates a mountain of stress. This board, however, runs like a well oiled machine. It is an extremely exciting time to have a student in Clark County.

Stand Up Clark County for board members eager to serve our children.
