9. Information Items/Announcements/Adjournment (9:10 – 9:15)


I notice that there has been no mention of the special education FCMAT report since it was presented March 11. It had been my impression that the recommendations would come back for a board vote on March 25.

Do you think the committee should discuss the FCMAT recommendations?
