The Christina School District Board of Education had an action item on their agenda to enter into a contract with the BRINC Consortium and a company called Modern Teacher. I wrote a bit about it a few days ago. With a third referendum attempt facing the district and a huge loss of students this year due to school choice, as well as a $49,000 contract that would have been implemented with joining, it sounds like wiser minds prevailed on the board. The no votes were President Harrie Ellen Minnehan, Elizabeth Paige, Shirley Saffer and John Young. The yes votes belonged to Vice-President George Evans and David Ressler.
In a change of pace, last night’s board meeting lasted for an hour and a half.
