Public Comment [24:35]

Jodi: Asked questions regarding a contracted PR consultant.

Tracy: Talked about what the school district will do to help children impacted by the recent tasing of a juvenile. Has concerns for the children’s well-being and concerns of a growing racial divide in the district.

Rich: Has a son that he has been trying to get into New Horizons school for over a year. He feels that the district is failing him by not returning his emails or calls and he is upset with the lack of help.

Casey: Disappointed with the poor planning of school events. She does not believe a school board meeting should be taking the same night as a volleyball game and an open house.

To Rich, the only way to get results is to get an attorney from outside your county. There are some excellent attorney’s for children who advocate for special needs children.
