Another meeting. But guess what they’re not going to talk about.
Francis Howell to discuss class sizes, hiring staff as it prepares for transfers
The issue of students transferring from unaccredited districts has generated so many questions and concerns that the Francis Howell School Board is considering hiring a staff member to deal with the response.
The position would be part time and work as needed to help answer questions from parents and the community, as well as assist in placing transfer students from Normandy.
The Francis Howell School Board will meet tonight to vote on the new student transfer administrator and several other policies related to the issue — including class sizes, tuition and a payment schedule.
Not on the agenda tonight: Discussing the wisdom of allowing the Normandy undertow to transfer to FH at all.
Read the rest of the article, and you’ll find out that the City-County interdistrict deseg program, which was supposed to have ended by now, is still going on. That’s a totally separate mechanism from Turner law transfers.
By the way, haven’t you noticed there’s some meeting about this matter almost every weekday? I guess TPTB think that deseg this time around will work out so much better if we just hold more meetings about it.
How it turned out. Mark Parkinson wants to move and move fast in the September special session of the General Assembly to amend the Turner law to stop transfers.
