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.
