At an organizational meeting this morning, the Oakland school board unanimously elected second-term board member Gary Yee (right) as its president and Chris Dobbins as its VP, according to Troy Flint, the OUSD spokesman.
The board also voted to increase its monthly compensation from $750 to $787.50, a 5 percent raise which amounts to an extra $450 a year per member ($3,150 for all seven board members).
I wasn’t at the meeting, so I didn’t hear the discussion around this issue, but I’ll watch the video when it’s posted. Thoughts?
