Soon after they were sworn in, the members added items to their meeting agenda and reversed some major decisions made by the former board.
“We heard your calls for reform,” said Malone.
The new board proposed an assignment change that would promote neighborhood schools and end the current plan of busing to balance socio-economic diversity. The plan will go before a committee for review.
“I think all the newly elected board members are like-minded, and I think we will do a good job together. We make a good team,” said Prickett.
Board members said they support the learning communities, but they want to find a better way to accommodate teachers without affecting family schedules.
