It could become the longest school board meeting in LA Unified history.
With only one major agenda item at tomorrow’s 6:15 pm special meeting — to fill the District 1 vacancy by election or appointment — the board today removed any limit on the number of speakers addressing the board before action is taken.
Previously, the board was allowing only 14 to speak. Now any number can talk but for only 2 minutes each, 1 minute less than normal.
Even so, it could be a long night.
