It’s a big meeting day at LA Unified’s downtown headquarters, with three committees convening one after another starting this afternoon.
At 1 o’clock, it’s the Curriculum and Instruction Committee, chaired by Marguerite LaMotte; followed at 3 p.m. by the Budget, Facilities and Audit Committee, led by Bennett Kayser; and at 5:30 by the Common Core Technology Project Ad Hoc Committee, chaired by Monica Ratliff.
No telling how boisterous they might become during the public comment periods, given the number of hot-button issues unresolved, such as the district’s spending plan for the 2014-2015 academic year, Local Control Funding Formula issues and everybody’s current favorite pinata, the iPads, which now might cost an extra $100 each, according to a story in today’s LA Times. Members might also hear from some overwrought, overworked principals.
All in all, it could be quite a show.
