The Board Docs for Monday's (10/7/13) Committee of the Whole Meeting have been posted. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Walker School. The only topic for discussion is something called "Visioning and Long Range Planning." The tab for this agenda item explains:
Strategic planning is supposed to be what the Board of Education does. There are commonly accepted definitions of the term "strategic planning" and commonly accepted processes to follow. Going into any kind of long range "planning" meeting, the BOE should first give direction on the process. Has the D181 board done this and do any of the board members really know what this process is supposed to be and how it should be structured? Moreover, what is the focus of this meeting? There doesn't appear to be any.
