Tavares, FL - Monday, Sept. 17, 2012
Sorry for the short notice, but anytime the Lake County School Board sets an offsite meeting, and changed the normal meeting time, there is usually something being discussed where they want to minimize attendance. Today the Board is having an offsite meeting and the time was moved up to 1pm, and the location is in Eustis at 1pm today, Sept. 17 (not normal 2pm) at 200 W. Golf Links Ave. Eustis, FL (Note: The actual online agenda, below, was poorly edited and left in the HQ address ALSO, but Golf Links is the proper address)
The key issue is the discussion of the Capital spending plan where some Board members want to keep spending remaining funds on more school renovations rather than technology suggested by Board Member Jim Miller. Since Miller is running against Board Chair Rosanne Brandeburg for the same District (due to redistricting boundary changes), and she supports old style capital spending, it should be interesting. The issue is whether remaining, about to run out capital funds should just be spent on old buildings, or rather on new technology and learning procedures.
Today's Orlando Sentinel Lake section had an article by Erica Rogriquez talking about the new technology based "Flip" learning methods that Miller supports, so you can read about it here:
The agenda for today's offsite Lake County FL School Board meeting is below. It is at 1PM, an hour earlier than normal, so be there to watch the festivities:
NOTE: The copy of the agenda below is directly from the school website and they confused everyone by leaving in the incorrect headquarters address also.
