Surprisingly, all board members (and Dr. Sconzo) were in attendance tonight. There were lots of minutes meetings packets, but no accommendations nor any public comments, which I’m sure the board took a huge sigh of relief. The meeting didn’t get started until approx. 7:20 and President Martin wanted someone to call Mr. Graves to give him an update on possibly the shortest board meeting in history, it ended just before 8 p.m.
Not much discussions, pretty much only one on High Point. It costs the school district a whopping $17,800 per student. So there was some discussions as to creating our own High Point campus, so to speak, to hopefully save some money there. Dr. Sconzo would like to look into that in the coming year for possibly the next school year. The one thing they approved of that I personally have a bone to pick with them is approving Latte 4 U to provide coffee vending machine service to ALL high school campuses and various support facilities within Humble ISD. Gotta say, it may not be much money saved, but do we really need to put coffee at our high school campuses? I won’t comment further on that one.
Also noted on the board reports, the board and Dr. Sconzo have followed up with Lieutenant Governor Dewhurst in regards to the WADA funding (which moi has been reporting on.) The Lieutenant Governor has been very encouraging believing that the legislature must adjust the method of determining WADA. Once again fellas, I’m not holding my breath.
One last item, Ms. Dania Rovengno has been appointed to the position of Principal at Atascocita High School, effective July 1, 2008. Ms. Rovengno is currently the Associate Principal at AHS.
