Board meeting documents are available here. The meeting is open to the public and includes public speaking segments. The board will discuss Board Attorney Kristy Gavin’s fate at both meetings, and possibly take action, either to fire her or to change or title, from Board Attorney to Staff Attorney. The evening meeting is also expected to include a vote to approve Superintendent LaShakia Moore’s contract, with a base pay of $175,000. As always at these meetings, additional surprises, none of them having to do with education, are more likely than not. See:
