Here’s a video playlist for the whole meeting: teacher hiring, board member training, and a statement against school consolidation, with additional comments by many citizens. Many of these videos have already been published in the VBOE 29 August 2011 category in this blog.

The playlist also includes other video material, such as the 6PM convening just to adjourn to executive session, the SRO crowd waiting 20 minutes before 7PM, hiring of four new teachers, board member training, parts 1, 2, and 3.

Material already posted includes the board deciding to put off any planning for a new elementary school because of the consolidation referendum, then finally their statement against school consolidation and their vote for it (except for Jeana Beeland).

Well, finally except for the many citizens who stood up and said something at the end, listed here in chronological order:

Oh yes, and FVCS forming up outside for a group picture. No pictures of CUEE; sorry; if they were there they were awful quiet for a group that claims it is trying to improve education.

Congratulations to those who did attend.

Citizens actively participating in local government. Enjoy.
