Hypocrisy on the agenda tonight

APS' District and Community Relations Committee is meeting tonight. On the agenda, link, a report on APS' Superintendent's Student Advisory Council (SuperSAC).

There will be the report and then discussion. It wouldn't be surprising to find at least a handful of the super students came to watch.

If they get there early enough they can watch the committee of the whole violate the Open Meetings Act.

Item B on the agenda reads

"... the Approval of the August 23, 2011, November 22, 2011, and December 13, 2011, District and Community Relations Committee meeting minutes.
It would appear that the minutes from the August meeting were not approved at the next meeting, nor at the next, nor at the next.

A quick check of the law, link, reveals (in significant part);
Draft minutes shall be prepared within ten working days after the meeting and shall be approved, amended or disapproved at the next meeting where a quorum is present. emphasis added
If students go to more than a few board meetings,
they will find their senior-most role models
blatantly disregarding the rules, all the time.

That's how a lot of them can rationalize doing the same.
