Harlan Gallinger, Marnie Maraldo, Anne Moore, Suzanne Weaver, 1 open position
The School Board reviewed the problem of making up the 6 snow days during February. It was recognized as an Emergency by the state, so they have the option to waive 3. Superintendent Thiele is still considering that as an option.
Superintendent Thiele stated emphatically that he would NOT change the graduation schedule.
Considerable discussion on bills in the legislature on education funding, levies, bonds, and the levy lid lift.
Discussion of concerns of the public when they go to present their own upcoming levy, and how to get
information to the community.
Remainder of discussion was the process of interviewing candidates for the open board position.
The members are well-informed and very engaged. They have members who visit Olympia, and one that even went to Washington DC. They appear to get along with each other very well, and are respectful of each other and the District staff.
