The board will discuss updating its memorandum of understanding with the county health department regarding flu vaccinations. The board will also consider approving an $18,500 contract with a company called Social Sentinel. The item is described this way on the board’s agenda: “Social Sentinel service has three unique components that work in concert to ensure that Flagler Schools receives alerts to threats that are shared socially without requiring Flagler County Schools to employ social media linguists, safety-related behaviorists, and data scientists. Both parties will work together to ensure that alerts are surfaced, false positives are minimized, social media users’ rights are maintained, and non-safety related posts are not included in your feed.” See the briefing here.

When the French and Spanish came to Florida in the 1500s, they found it occupied by over 200,000 Timucua Indians. They were an organized nation of over 30 chiefdoms and spoke several dialects. Unfortunately, warfare among the chiefdoms and the Europeans caused the rapid decline of the Timucuan Nation. Lack of immunity to the European diseases contributed greatly to their eventual extinction by the early 1800s. When Spain gave Florida to France in the 1760s, they took several of the Timucua to Cuba, where the last known survivor died in slavery.
