The Christina School District Board of Education released the agenda for their board meeting a week from today, December 9th. Included in the agenda is this rather mysterious item, under legal matters:
Authorization for the Superintendent to Act on Legal Matter on PS090414.
It wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that item number also has the date of Governor Markell’s Priority Schools announcement at Warner Elementary School. But the key words in this agenda announcement are “Act” and “Legal Matter”. Most board meetings keep legal matters in executive session. Will the board go against the grain and make this part of the public session? I would doubt it, but this is also a board that allowed three hours of public comment at their first board meeting after the Priority announcement, so anything can happen.
I have some guesses what this could be about, but I won’t say what they are because it would ruin the surprise. I would have to doubt a board as wise as Christina would just let Markell take schools away from them without a fight. That’s all I’m saying!
