(These are my personal vuiews and not the official statement or records of the Board.)
The School Board held a special meeting this morning to discuss a couple of changes to policy 5.12 to clarify the role of the School Board liaison to an advisory committee. You can find the proposed text here: http://www.boarddocs.com/vsba/fccpsva/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=A5BNHQ5BC404 (as part of the agenda for the meeting).
The Board also discussed a proposal from member Susan Kearney to also clarify the roles and responsibilities of the advisory committees, in the third paragraph of paragraph (B) of the policy. After a long discussion, the Board approved a clarifying change. The approved change was in addition to the ones included in the document referenced above.
