There is no statement in this public announcement that the agenda for the BOE meeting tonight Nov 14 is of vital importance to the governance of the LTPS schools. The missing information is that this meeting will decide whether BOE elections will take place in April 2013 or be moved to Nov 2013, thus effectively continuing the status quo for another 6 months. The public is not being alerted that their input is sought concerning academic program priorities against anticipated budget cuts facing the district. Following the link or inspecting the submitted document takes you to a 24 page document with no clear statement of the specific agenda for public input given. Yet again, the Patch and BOE deliver maximum misinformation and obscurity concerning critical school board topics to the public.
