The LA Unified Board meeting reconvenes today with a full compliment of members. The board now includes a representative from District 1, George McKenna, who was sworn in earlier in the day. He is replacing the late Marguerite LaMotte.
Among the items for discussion are a review of the district’s labor contracts, a handful of procurement issues and and a vote to affirm the potential revocation of charters for Magnolia Academy 6 and Magnolia Academy 7.
The board voted to close the schools over financial improprieties in June, but a court ruled they could stay open, on the condition of meeting certain criteria. The board is voting to make official its position on revocation.
The board is also planning to approve new committee chairs and set forth meeting schedules.
