Board Meeting Results

At last night's LASD Board Meeting, Gardner Bullis was well represented by a number of GB parents. I addressed the board on the topic of the BCS offer for our campus, and let them know that the LASD is not served by an offer such as this. As a parent, I'm also proud that my daughter, who is president of the Gardner Bullis Student Council, also addressed the Board on this important topic. I have attached the text of my speech below for those who are interested. After the meeting, I discussed the issue informally with several board members. They are grateful for our public support, and welcomed the comments both at the board meeting and via email. Two Board members confirmed to me that the feedback will be extremely valuable during the litigation which is nearly certain to occur. Note that if you were too shy to speak last night, or simply couldn't make the meeting, you can still email comments to the Board.

On a broader note, the Board of Trustees recognized a number of high-achieving students, of which we should all be very proud. LASD had 10 students qualify for the finals in the State Geography Bee, and they placed exceptionally well. Blach received an award from Walden West in recognition of their outstanding efforts for the environment. The Egan Chess Club won at state competition recently, and their students and faculty sponsor were also recognized. Congratulations to all of these big winners!
