On the agenda: Sunshine

The district airs its first proposal for the next teacher contract at Wednesday night’s board meeting.

The teacher’s union, which publicly announced its demands already, will formally do so as well.

 The Wednesday evening gathering at 1025 Second Avenue includes a report on how the guv’s proposed budget cuts would affect OUSD, and details of a new incentive plan for substitute teachers.

And here’s something I haven’t seen in my three years covering education: Members of the public, the staff and the board actually get to critique the meeting. Here’s the catch: You have to make it to the end of the agenda in order to complain about how long it was.
