Draft Minutes Reflecting Adopted Alternative Governance Plan
I have been waiting for staff to send me the text of the adopted alternative
governance plan and didn¹t realize that they it has been in front of me for
some time in the form of the draft (not yet approved by the board) minutes
from the 2/15 meeting. Here it is as it appears in the minutes which are on
tomorrow (Wednesday) night¹s meeting agenda.
Ms. Pfeifer moved that the board of education approve an alternative
governance plan for all yr 5 schools; this plan shall consist of the
superintendent of schools taking over direct governance of all yr 5 schools
for 2005-06 school year. The board of education shall direct the
superintendent to exercise all means at our [the board¹s] disposal to create
strong site councils at each school. These School Site Councils (SSC) will
meet as outlined in Ed Code 52012, and shall meet regularly with the
district superintendent throughout the school year and shall serve as a
planning committee regarding recommendations for a corrective action plan
for the school should such a plan be necessary; The Superintendent shall
advertise Requests For Proposals for Year 5 Schools. Mr. Ramsey seconded.
Roll call vote: Ms. Fenton, Mr. Brown, Ms. Pfeifer, Mr. Ramsey, and
President Price voting yes, with no abstentions. Motion carried.
This may have already been posted here and, if so, my apologies. I was away
for most of last week travelling with my daughters and still have about 60
unread wccusdtalk messages.
Very best wishes,
