RE: 503, WA6, Little

The purpose of EVOC 503 WA6 was to attend and report upon what happened at a local school board meeting. The following six criteria were specified:

1.     Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.

2.     Attend a local school board meeting and write a brief synopsis of what occurred at that meeting.

3.     Indicate what locality (geographic area) the school board has jurisdiction in and where and when the meeting was held.

4.     Indicate the full name of each school board member and his or her occupational background.

5.     Indicate what the major topic of discussion was and what was, or was not, resolved as a result of the discussion.

6.     Indicate what personal value was derived from attending the meeting.

The following sources of information were used relative to this assignment:

1.     Little, Rick - From my own professional experience.

2.     Lowman, Judy - Chaffey College Instructor

I believe that the attached proposal meets all six of above listed criteria and respectfully request full credit: one point for meeting each of the above listed criteria.

GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF THE SCHOOL BOARD'S JURISDICTION

WHERE AND WHEN THE MEETING WAS HELD

The meeting was held in the Staff Dining Room of the college on Monday, January 28th, from 7:00 to 9:30 PM.

NAME AND OCCUPATION OF EACH BOARD MEMBER

Juanita Knowsitall (Board President) - Owner of Juanita's Quick Stop Taco Shop and Dry Cleaners.

Henry Beenthere - General Manager of the Tunatale Cannery.

Willy Orwonthe - Retired high school principal.

MAJOR TOPIC OF DISCUSSION AT THE MEETING

Several issues related to funding for various requests were discussed. The major topic of discussion revolved around the current lawsuit to have the Tunatale logos removed from the Fishbreath High School Band Uniforms. More than 20 band members from Fishbreath High were in attendance to plead the case for retaining the logos. Ms. Wilma Sourgrapes, who initiated the lawsuit, was present at the meeting, but declined to comment on the matter noting that the Board had previously failed to take appropriate action and that the matter was now in the hands of the court.

WHAT I LEARNED FROM ATTENDING THE MEETING

This is the first school board meeting that I have attended and I was impressed by the consternation of the proceedings. Everyone was given an opportunity to say what was on their mind and everyone did. On the other hand, of the seven items on the agenda for this meeting, only one was actually acted upon by the board!
