The back to school open house will be on August 20th at Edison with shuttles between schools. Don also shared he’s the co-president of the PTA for the upcoming school year.
VI. Board Meeting and Agenda Structure
Luke suggested putting a timeline of 2 weeks for special requests/outside guests being added to the agenda. Luke also asked if we want to keep doing board meetings before community meetings. Discussion ensued on the board meeting frequency before community meetings. Egan proposed moving community meeting to 7:30 PM so board meetings can run over if necessary. He also suggested maintaining some of our formal structure and adding a topical/rotating piece of guest speakers or info at community meetings. Adam suggested differentiating between board meeting guests who want to share information and guests who are looking for a letter/donation/ or specific “ask”. Luke is formalizing recommendations into a more detailed structure.
VII. Board Training Recap
Luke will organize structures and documentation for the organizing of committees for the September board meeting.
