Eight Board Watchers attend­ed the November 2, 2011 school board meet­ing which was an infor­ma­tional meet­ing in which staff or oth­er resource per­sons make pre­sen­ta­tions to the Board about top­ics of inter­est and rel­e­vance. The Human Resources staff made an exten­sive pre­sen­ta­tion to the Board about poli­cies and pro­ce­dures that are being devel­oped for teacher hir­ing and per­for­mance eval­u­a­tion. The plans are ambi­tious, but they seem like the plans of an effec­tive, sta­ble, medi­um sized dis­trict. We won­der if they are real­is­tic for a shrink­ing, fail­ing dis­trict. What the imme­di­ate pri­or­i­ties should be for turn­ing the dis­trict around were not dis­cussed.

Do the Right Thing for Kids will con­tin­ue to mon­i­tor KCMSD School Board meet­ings and report our obser­va­tions on this Website.
