Seriously? How can a school leader announce ANTICIPATED BOARD MEMBERS? On what grounds is she asserting they are anticipated? Did she select them? How many have employment relationships outside the boardroom, does this group fulfill the bylaws requirements of 2 parents and two teachers (not paras)? Is she installing them? Isn’t this an independent board function?
Is this what the charter law intended by asking for innovation? Oh, and where in the hell is the blue ribbon panel Rep. Schooley, Sen. Sokola and Gov. Markell?
Reminds me of one of my favorite Naked Gun scenes:
