In today's Courier Times is an article about my proposal for remote participation at public meetings when a board member is unable to be physically present. After many months of working on this concept with the Board Policies Committee, the matter finally comes to a vote at our April 28th meeting.
Since this idea was first proposed it was met with opposition by several members of the board, the most common objection being that a board member should be able to see the faces of the people in the audience when casting a vote. I guess this means a blind person cannot serve on a school board?
I could use a little help here. How about a shout-out of support . . . can I get an Amen?!?
