October 28th BOE meeting

Looks like the BOE has a pretty full agenda set for Monday, October 28th. For those that are interested in news about the new high school site selection, it looks like they are appending some tidbits on the back end of a Facility Committee report (and yet another consultant try to tell us what we want).

The Choice RFP has been re-issued

I was recently notified that the district has re-issued the Choice RFP. I find this extremely interesting, and I wonder what it means.

There will be yet another mandatory information meeting, on Halloween no less. 🙂 Isn’t that scary. The new RFP is extremely similar to the previous RFP back in April/May – it goes on to paint a very broad generic picture of what they want the vendor to do, but they give almost no details as to what the program should accomplish. Last year I recommended to the Board that they resubmit the RFP of 2012 when Alves was the only one that responded. I wonder if perhaps this time they are following-up on that. So many questions, so few answers…..
