What is the most interesting thing to you on tonight’s agenda?

11:57 pm UPDATE: Here’s a recap of what happened:

(I arrived after the report out of closed session and the student rep comments)

[You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.]

  • Theresa Harrington

    Braun-Martin just came out and told the man: “They’re ready for you! Have a good night, Tom.” And he walked down the hallway rolling a cart of documents behind him.
    Before going into closed session, Hansen said she hoped to report out by 9 p.m.

  • Wait a Minute

    Is he outside counsel the Board brought in?

  • g

    Tom is about 80?

  • Theresa Harrington

    He didn’t look 80 to me, but I’m not good at guessing ages. I thought he looked more like he was in his 60s. Of course, I didn’t stare at him, so I only saw him peripherally.

  • Theresa Harrington

    Here’s the link to the first part of the meeting: http://www.mdusd.org/boe/Documents/audio/2013/04252013part1.mp3

  • Theresa Harrington

    The man with the rolling cart of documents just left. So now, we wait…

    The “two employees” being considered have the same employee numbers that were listed on the last closed session agenda.

    In addition, two new “certificated employees” are being considered for Public Employee Discipline/Dismissal/Release/Complaint. Their employee numbers are much lower than the other two, which I’m told means they have likely worked in the district quite a bit longer.

  • Doctor J

    Theresa, can you give us an idea of what a rolling cart of documents means ? Number of boxes ? Stacks of papers ? 2 level cart ?

  • Theresa Harrington

    Again, I wasn’t really staring at the man, but he had a cart that looked to be the size of a milk crate with files in it. He really wasn’t in there that long though.
