When I arrived, the elementary school principals were reviewing their School Improvement Plans.

This was the first meeting conducted with the new 'order of business' or agenda approved at the last meeting. The documentation to support the meeting flow can be tweaked a little to help it. With 'Discussion and Action' as well as 'Discussion Only' items and several items in each category, it can be confusing.
The policy documents were only released on Tuesday afternoon, too late for them to be shared and likely actually read to help prepare for the meeting. I raised this as an issue during the meeting and it will be addressed.

The most interesting discussion was around the proposal for the FHS boys varsity basketball team to travel for a holiday week tournament in FL during Dec 2017. Ultimately, the proposal was sent back to come again with additional information for discussion before being voted on.
The School Committee will have a table at the Harvest Festival scheduled for Saturday, Oct 14.
The next regularly scheduled meeting, Tuesday, Oct 10, will be a budget workshop rather than follow the normal meeting agenda. The meeting will be held in the 3rd Floor Training Room at the Municipal Bldg at 7 PM.
