Did I miss the posting for the formation of this committee? I hope they plan to be transparent, although the addition of the leader of the Yes on Measure G initiative to the committee smacks of patronage.

@ Sunshine--Yes--you missed it! A resolution to set up the oversight committee was adopted at the Board's August 23 meeting, a press release went out on August 29, notices went out through backpack mail and the school elists, and the application form (which was due September 28) was readily available on the District's webpage if you press the prominent MEASURE G link in big purple letters on the right hand side of the home page. That said, it's not too late to participate in the process by attending the open meetings and contributing during the public comment periods. Please put your umbrella away and focus your efforts on collaborating and contributing. Working together, we can make our schools great!

@Sunshine, yes I received this in my school newsletter, since I have two children currently attending MVWSD schools. It would definitely have been a little harder to find out about if you don't receive backpack mail or e-newsletters.
I hope everyone who was interested in how the school district worked would come out to school district or oversight committee meetings more often. Members of the general public only very infrequently drop in to see the sausage getting made. Of course, people are busy doing their own things.
Is there a mailing list people can sign up for to get meeting agendas for all the various public district meetings? So they don't have to think to go look on the district website for new links that have popped up since they last checked?
