Will the broadcast version of the APS board meeting be honest?

APS board meetings are recorded, and then broadcast to the
community on TaLNet; the Teaching and Learning Network.

APS has a long history of dishonesty in these broadcasts.
Some have been dishonestly edited, some have been
broadcast without audio, many have not been broadcast
at all.

If yesterday's board meeting is honestly broadcast,
viewer stakeholders will watch School Board President
Marty Esquivel, abridge my exercise of rights to petition my
government, and to free speech.

Not a good thing.

I will not be surprised if some "technical glitch" prevents the
truth from being broadcast.

Nor should you be.

So they did show it tonight, with sound even!!!! However, they looped the part with Monica and you twice and that was it. Right after Monica finished she asked for questions and the loop began again. So Ched, since the media won't report and APS can't find the integrity to air their own board meetings, do tell, what happened and who and what was the 2nd presentation?

The second presentation was postponed until the next(?) meeting.

It was to have been
Goal 7) Study, modify and recommend a plan to transition APS from a site-based management structure to a district-based management structure Dupuy Bateman

I think Bateman is the new CFO.

Brooks presents the move to district based management as a budgeting issue, and not as one that strips stakeholders of any meaningful participation in site based decision making.

Well said, and predicted as usual.I will continue to inform on this site every time they fail to broadcast.
